Also in Hong Kong, flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a group success when Australian-bred 6YO gelding Packing Ok (Redoute's Choice-Abbadena, by Runyon) scored by 1.5-length in the HK$2.4 million Gr3 National Day Cup (1400m) at Sha Tin, over NZ-bred 7YO gelding Aashiq (Viking Ruler-Join The Fun, by Rory's Jester) & Irish-bred 5YO gelding Helene Spirit (Footstepsinthesand-Arazena, by Woodman). Packing Ok (a $480,000 yearling at the 2008 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) took his record to 5 wins (including January's Gr3 Centenary Vase over 1800m at Sha Tin) & 6 placings (including last month's Gr3 January Cup Handicap over 1800m at Happy Valley) from 17 starts.
