Fifty Fifty stepped up to the plate last time with a debut Group 1 performance packed full of merit and jockey Karis Teetan believes the popular grey has more to give in Sunday’s (25 February) G1 Queen’s Silver Jubilee Cup (1400m).
“He’s proved that he’s in the same league as those horses; I feel like he’s gradually going up and now he’s reached that level where he can run against the best horses – but he’s still getting better,” Teetan said at Sha Tin this morning (23 February).
Fifty Fifty is one of the season’s brightest emerging talents. Since a career debut second last July, Peter Ho’s charge has risen rapidly to the top rank. Four wins from six starts this term have taken the Thorn Park five-year-old’s local rating from 74 to 121; along the way he has snared the G3 Chinese Club Challenge Cup Handicap (1400m) and in last month’s G1 Stewards’ Cup (1600m) the gelding finished a half-length second to Seasons Bloom.
