Cape Cross Adds HK Gr2

Tuesday, 6th April 2010

In Hong Kong, former Darley shuttler Cape Cross (Green Desert-Park Appeal, by Ahonoora) added a group success when 7YO gelding Able One (Cape Cross-Gardenia, by Danehill) scored by a nose in the HK$3 million (A$430,000) Gr2 Chairman's Trophy (1600m) at Sha Tin. Able One (ridden by Australian jockey Darren Beadman for expatriate Australian trainer John Moore) defeated 5YO entire Mr Medici (Medicean-Way For Life, by Platini) & fast-finishing 8YO gelding Viva Pataca (Marju-Comic, by Be My Chief). Able One (bred by Sir Patrick Hogan but whose career has frequently been interrupted by injury) was originally a NZ$190,000 yearling at the 2004 NZB Select Sale & later resold for NZ$270,000 at the 2004 NZB 2YOs-In-Training Sale. Overall he now has 6 wins (also including 2008's Gr3 Premier Cup over 1400m & 2007's Gr1 Champions Mile over 1600m) & 3 placings (including 2008's Gr1 HK International Mile over 1600m) from 28 starts for HK$14,476,500 (A$2.068m) earnings.
