Imabayboy Wins Gr1 Macau Gunieas
In Macau yesterday, ill-fated Gr1-winning NZ Grangewilliam Stud stallion San Luis (Flying Spur-Star Style Girl, by Without Fear) added a Gr1 triumph when 4YO gelding Imabayboy (San Luis-English Kath, by Kaapstad) scored a 2-lengths victory in the 1st leg of the Macau Triple Crown, the HK$1 million (A$128,000) Gr1 Macau Guineas (1500m) at Taipa. Imabayboy (ridden by Andrew Calder for trainer Paddy Busuttin) defeated fellow 4YO geldings The Lucky Steed (Fantastic Light-Princess Alea, by Prince Ferdinand) & St Peter's Gift (St Petersburg-Royal Pas, by Kingdom Bay). Imabayboy now has 2 wins from 9 starts in Macau; he previously recorded 5 wins & 3 placings from 15 starts in New Zealand.
