Handsome Ransom Adds Singapore Gr3
In Singapore, NZ Wellfield Stud's Australian-bred Gr3-winning stallion Handsome Ransom (Red Ransom-Bianca Lancia, by Mill Reef) added a group success when 4YO gelding Fatkid (Handsome Ransom-Grace Jones, by Maroof) scored a 1-length victory in the S$200,000 (A$155,000) Gr3 Fortune Bowl (2000m) at Kranji. Fatkid (ridden by Ismael Saifudin for trainer Hor Khoon Tan) defeated top-weighted front-running 5YO gelding Escamonda (Alpha Plus-Wise Girl, by Gold Trojan) & favoured fellow 4YO gelding Clint (Casual Lies-Torch, by Deputy Governor). Fatkid (passed-in for NZ$25,000 as a 2YO at the 2008 NZB Ready-To-Run Sale) took his record to 4 wins & 5 runners-up from 15 starts for S$283,466 (A$225,000) earnings.
