California Spangle victorious in the Hong Kong Mile (HKJC)


“He’s a lot more relaxed this season and he kept coming back underneath me. I kept trying to click him along but he was waiting for the other horses. I think we’ve seen today that he is a little bit versatile.”

2nd: GOLDEN SIXTY – Vincent Ho

“My horse ran very well and I’m happy for him. The other one had good pace and saved all the ground.”

3rd: LAWS OF INDICES – James McDonald

“He went enormous. It was unreal. I’m so proud of him.”

4th: BEAUTY JOY – Hugh Bowman

“He ran very well, I thought he acquitted himself perfectly.”

5th: MORE THAN THIS – Derek Leung

“He’s getting a bit older and the pace was quite fast for him but he’s still honest.”

6th: DANON SCORPION – William Buick

“He missed the break so was on the back foot from the word go. The race turned into a real sprint home which he’s not used to, he’s only a three-year-old and maybe this has all come a bit early for him.”

7th: EXCELLENT PROPOSAL – Antoine Hamelin

“I was a bit out of the race and I needed to ask him all the way. He finished a little bit better than what I thought, not bad, just too far for him.”

8th: WAIKUKU – Silvestre De Sousa

“He ran a good race. I was in a perfect position, he just ran out of class today.”

9th: SCHNELL MEISTER – Christophe Lemaire

“He didn’t step out from the gate at all. He had no response turning the final corners.”

"Nice work and well said Jon."
