The Hong Kong Cup remains the richest race in Hong Kong at $28million HK dollars and local or Japanese horses have dominated the contest since Dunlop’s Snow Fairy stunned a quality field thanks to her rapid turn of foot eight years ago.
Dunlop doesn’t have a runner in the Hong Kong Cup this year, but he has won the Hong Kong Vase (worth just the $20million HK dollars) twice before as well and he could – even though the odds are stacked against him – win that race for a record-breaking third time at this year’s meeting.
Ouija Board was his first. A class apart at three when winning the Oaks, Irish Oaks and Filly & Mare Turf at the Breeders’ Cup, her four-year-old campaign was interrupted when she was injured at York, when Royal Ascot was on tour, but she became a bit of a globetrotter at the backend of 2005.
Beaten into second when attempting to retain her Breeders’ Cup crown, she also tasted defeat in the Japan Cup after that, but Hong Kong was a different story.
During the race, you wondered if the breaks would come. But come they did, ice-cool Kieren Fallon steering her through the field as the Cape Cross filly recorded a tremendous near three-length success.
