Follow Hong Kong racing’s Rising Stars this season at the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s theme site, which launched today, 6 November.
Fans can get the lowdown on Hong Kong’s most exciting young equine talents; potentially top-class prospects such as Aethero, Regency Legend and Champion’s Way.
The site offers latest information and news to help fans chart the progress of their favourite young stars as they race towards the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races, the Four-Year-Old Classic Series and beyond.
Last season’s Rising Stars generally lived up to expectations. Champion’s Way was the Most Improved Horse and was crowned Champion Griffin, while Furore and Waikuku finished one-two in the BMW Hong Kong Derby and could prove to be major players in December’s LONGINES Hong Kong International Races.
From this season’s Rising Stars crop, Aethero and Regency Legend are already being aimed at the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races, while Golden Sixty and Star Performance are likely sorts for the Four-Year-Old Classic series.
26 members of the racing media and Club commentators were tasked with selecting a total of 10 Rising Stars to follow: (Website: http://campaign.hkjc.com/en/rising-star/index.aspx)
