Hong Kong Season Comes to an End13 Jul 2018
The Hong Kong racing year comes to an end on Sunday and the farm will have two good chances of posting a win on the card.
The David Hall trained Ho Ho Khan (aka Mulanchi) steps out in the HK$1,310,000 Contentment Handicap over 1600m - his second start in Hong Kong - after running home nicely over 1400m on debut last month. The Makfi gelding showed well above average ability in New Zealand when trained by Tony Pike, running third to Bevan Street and Kapoor on debut at Taupo, before winning his maiden, while he finished strongly for third at his last start in New Zealand when narrowly beaten by Demonetization and Kapoor. Ho Ho Khan will be ridden by Chad Schofield.
By Makfi from the Encosta de Lago mare China Choice, Ho Ho Khan is bred on the same cross as Group 1 winner Sofia Rosa.
The second runner for the farm in Hong Kong on Sunday is the highly talented Superich (Red Giant) who has shown well above average ability in his three starts, winning over 1000m on debut in very quick time, before finishing second and third at his next two starts without having any luck.
Trained by leading newcomer Frankie Lor, Superich has been ridden in all three starts to date by top hoop Joao Moreira who sticks with the three-year-old on Sunday as he strives to reduce Zac Purton’s advantage in the Jockey’s Title.
