Ambitious Dragon Half-Brother At HK March Sale
In Hong Kong, a yearling half-brother to 4YO gelding Ambitious Dragon (Pins-Golden Gamble, by Oregon) who won Sunday's HK$6 million (A$755,000) Gr1 HK Classic Cup (1800m) at Sha Tin, will be offered at the HK Jockey Club's International Sale in March. The yearling colt (by dual Derby-winning Coolmore shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral) was an astute purchase by HKJC representative Mark Richards for NZ$420,000 at this month's NZ Bloodstock Karaka Premier Sale. Ambitious Dragon (passed-in for NZ$47,500 as a yearling at the 2008 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale at Karaka) has won 5 of his 6 starts this campaign (including the last 3 in a row) & now boasts 5 wins & 2 placings from 10 starts for HK$5,393,600 (A$678,440) earnings.
