It was a tough season for trainer Peter Ho Leon, but the rare Griffin winner at Sha Tin on Sunday lifted his spirit.
The Dashing Triumph was unprecedented in the market before the Tung Wan Shan Plate (1,000m), but stayed strong inside the last 200m, rejecting the favorite Lucky Banner and making its debut under Dylan Mo Hin-tung. I won.
Despite the Dashing Triumph being sent for $ 28, the victory wasn’t a surprise to Ho. The trainer revealed that he had informed the owner that the Galloper would post a decent performance before the race.
“This was what I expected, because I talked to the owner before the race and said,” This is a good horse. He’s okay with everything. There’s no headache for the trainer and he always challenges. “I will do it,” Ho said.
“After his 800-meter trial [on May 10] He woke up-he already knew the game-and this wasn’t a strong field, that’s why this isn’t quite unexpected. “
Dashing Triumph’s victory is Ho’s first Griffin race winner in 23 years and his first debut winner since Trendy World in December 2014, when Ho was notified by the Jockey Club’s licensing committee1 It was a week.
This is the 11th winner of the season with nine meetings remaining since Sunday, struggling to achieve the minimum requirement of 16 wins for those without stables for two years. I am planning to go on strike in a row.
Failure to meet the benchmark means that you must explain in writing that performance is poor at the end of the season, and you may revoke your license if you do not meet the minimum criteria again.
For those who maintain their scores at home, Dashing Triumph was Peter Ho’s first 23-year Griffin race winner and his first debut winner since Trendy World in December 2014. #HKRacing
