We are ready!

As Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Races is getting closer, more and more overseas horses are coming to our city. It's one of my favorite times of the whole year, so exciting to see those heroes close up.

However, some unexpected incidents happened this year and the relevant horses have been forced to withdraw from the competitions. This includes the British winner of the 2010 Hong Kong Cup, SNOW FAIRY. She was injured in morning track work after coming to HK and sent back to the UK afterwards to recover. She will be missed and we hope she’ll recover soon and come back for next year's APQE II.

Apart from the bad news, we still have good news; Frankie Dettori has been invited to Cathay Pacific International Jockeys' Championship. The last time Dettori came to compete in the Championship was eight years ago. He was first champion jockey in 1999 and crowned the champion again in 2001, a master by common consent. He will face a big challenge from defending champion R Moore. Can our old buddy give us a good show?

In this year's Hong Kong International Races, the focus is on AMBITIOUS DRAGON and CALIFORNIA MEMORY who will be fighting it out in the Hong Kong Cup. This double-insurance strategy shows how eagerly our team wants to win after VENGEANCE OF RAIN's astonishing victory in 2005. In the Mile and the Sprint, we have a good winning record and are optimistic for our representatives to continue to add more. The only threats in my eyes are ROCKET MAN in Sprint and APAPANE in Mile. The Hong Kong Vase is a long distance race and not one of our strengths, but I still wish our diligent runners good luck.

Finally, we are ready!
