Trainer Me Tsui’s hot Happy Valley form continued tonight with a city track double courtesy of two horses prepared at the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s state-of-the art Conghua training facility.
Tsui, who landed a treble at the previous Valley meeting on 28 October, took the night’s opener with Dragon Dance who was resuming from a spell and whose preparation had been largely undertaken at Conghua – arriving there on 6 September and returning nine days ago.
His second winner Curling Luxury benefitted from a change of routine, leaving Sha Tin after his previous run and spending just on three weeks across the boundary.
“Conghua works really well for some horses,” Tsui said, “These two came here really well and fresh and I plan to make more use of the new facility. I’ve been there in the last few days making the arrangements to have more horses up there. At the moment I have 13 horses at Conghua but hope to have 20 to 25 by next month.”
