Kiwi bred wins in Hong Kong

Joao Moreira snared a double at Happy Valley on Wednesday night including a win in the Class 4 Beijing Clubhouse Anniversary Cup Handicap (1200m). 

That score came aboard the Tony Cruz-trained Wah May Princess, who was registering a third win from nine outings this campaign.

“It looks like he can go on from this,” Moreira said of the 2.8 favourite. “It felt like there was more in him. He’s got gate speed, he can always put himself up there – even if he goes up in class, I believe he will be capable to jump and just give himself the best chance because he’s up there on the speed.

“When we turned for home and I put him under pressure, he gave me such nice acceleration and I knew from then on I wasn’t going to get beaten.”

Wah May Princess was sold through Westbury Stud's 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock yearling draft and purchased in partnership by Waikato Bloodstock and Kangyu International Racingfor $90,000.
