Four winners in four successive days ensured China Horse Club members were a constant in the winners’ circle with the quartet of victors including some highly promising young talent. Talon (USA), Julius Caesar (Singapore), Bull Market (Australia) and New York Central (USA) showered themselves in glory while stablemate Good Samaritan was no less impressive as one of club’s three place getters when an eye-catching runner-up in the USD500,000 G1 Clark Handicap (USA).
“It was a rewarding few days for the club and for members, its important that every horse performs to their best of their talents whenever they are given the opportunity to run and four winners in three different countries suggests that is the case,” said Michael Wallace, Head of China Horse Club’s Bloodstock and Racing division.
“All four winners were impressive in their own way but it was particularly exciting to see New York Central race away in the manner that he did. It would also be remiss to not mention Good Samaritan’s performance over the weekend. He is an elite colt and not far away from winning that all important G1 race that will cement his standing as a stallion. He is deserving of a G1 win and we will look to place him to every advantage to help him achieve the mark.”
Talon launched the four-strong winning assault in the United States on Thanks Giving (Thursday 23rd November), saluting at Aqueduct in New York at his second career start by a comfortable length and a half. The athletic colt made amends for his debut second in late October and looks a progressive type heading into the back end of the 2017 season.
The two-year-old colt was joined in the winners’ circle the following day by Singapore based ‘stable mate’ Julius Caesar who overcame a slightly tardy start to score his third win in eight starts in the Asian racing centre. Having stalked race favourite Dream Comes True for most of the race, ‘Big Jules’ refused to lie down under the urgings of jockey Vlad Duric to loom up outside of him and then star down that performers rallying challenging to win by a neck.
The club’s red and yellow silks were again present in the winners circle the following day and in a third successive country when Bull Market scored in the AUD100,000 HQ of Insurance Handicap (1400m) in Sydney, Australia. The colt posted his second win in seven career starts when coming from off the pace to land a determined win in class record time.
The win of Bull Market removed some of the sting of Good Samaritan running a exceptional second in the USD500,000 G1 Clark Handicap in the early hours of Saturday morning. The high-quality colt came with his trademark withering burst from last only to be denied by half length, running out of straight as he closed hard on his rival.
New York Central
The roll on of the China Horse Club’s US stable was not over with the most visually impressive display of the weekend coming from the lightly raced New York Central. The striking grey produced a pulverising finish at only his second career start to clearly stamp himself as a horse on the rise. Having tracked his rivals for most of the 1200m contest, New York Central exploded early in the straight to win by a widening seven-and-a-half length. New York Central is a two-year-old son of America’s long time reigning champion sire Tapit out of a sister to multiple G1 winner Peace Rules.
