Trainer Me Tsui dominated proceedings at Happy Valley tonight (Wednesday, 16 May) as he won four of the first five races on a night where jockey Zac Purton also brought up his century of victories for the term with a double.
Tsui scored his second four-timer of the season and just his second Happy Valley quartet ever with the wins of Starlit Knight, Dragon Pioneer, Enormous Honour and Good For You. Notably, all four were partnered by different jockeys.
“I didn’t think I could get more than one or two wins tonight, so four is a big achievement for my stable,” Tsui said.
The night’s feature, the Class 3 St George’s Challenge Cup Handicap (1000m), went to the Tsui-trained Dragon Pioneer. Ridden by Joao Moreira, the Zoffany four-year-old was able to lead all the way for a length and a half triumph, his first in Hong Kong.
