Niconero Heads To HK Champion Mile
However Australian 4YO gelding Niconero (Danzero-Nicola Lass, by Scenic) is heading to Hong Kong to take on current HK star Joyful Winner & Silent Witness in the HK$8 million (A$1.3m) Champions Mile at Sha Tin on May 7. The race is the 3rd leg of the Asian Mile Challenge. Niconero (trained by David Hayes) finished a short-head runner-up in last Saturday's Gr1 All-Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick in Sydney; at his previous start he won the Listed Anniversary Vase (1400m) at Caulfield in Melbourne on April 1.
