Glorious Artist and Ugly Warrior departed Sha Tin this morning, Thursday, 29 August, bound for Seoul and the Korea Autumn Racing Carnival on Sunday, 8 September.
Vincent Ho, back home after a successful summer stint in Britain, which yielded six wins, will ride the Hong Kong raiders. The Frankie Lor-trained Glorious Artist is set for the KOR G1 Korea Cup (1800m) and Me Tsui’s Ugly Warrior is destined for the KOR G1 Korea Sprint (1200m).
Ho partnered Glorious Artist in a 1200m dirt track barrier trial at Sha Tin on Tuesday (27 August) morning and was pleased with the Zoffany five-year-old.
“He jumped very nicely and travelled gently, and when I asked him to pick up he found the room and did it nicely,” the jockey said after the gelding had dashed home ahead of the rest.
