Baron To Redeem Himself In Hong Kong?

Brett Crawford galloper skips Dubai World Cup

Sun Met winner Whisky Baron is amongst the 33 overseas entries in the 48 nominations for the HK$24 million Gr1 Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup to be run at Sha Tin over 2000m on 29 April.

Whisky Baron wins inaugural Sun Met – has had a tough trme since

Hong Kong’s recent Derby winner Ping Hai Star, and SA-bred runner-up in that race in Tony Millard’s Singapore Sling, are among the 116 horses from 12 jurisdictions nominated to contest one of three Gr1 features on the day.

For the first time, the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup , the HK$18 million Champions Mile and the HK$16 million Chairman’s Sprint Prize will form a world class triple-header. All rank in the World’s Top 100 Gr1 Races.

Ping Hai Star and Singapore Sling – rematch?

The APQEII Cup has attracted 48 nominations, 33 from overseas, with last year’s winner Neorealism among 12 Gr1 winners.

Brett Crawford has decided to give the Dubai World Cup, to be run on Saturday 31 March, a miss with Whisky Baron, who ran a disappointingly poor race in the Gr1 Jebel Hatta recently.

The son of Manhattan Rain will be given a change of scenery and he has four weeks to try and find the form that gave his connections the confidence to launch a global campaign after he won the Sun Met in 2017.
