Golden Sixty Opens Door For Exultant

Tony Cruz' charge can go one better this time

Golden Sixty was the talk of Happy Valley on Wednesday night with trainer Francis Lui revealing that his sensational BMW Hong Kong Derby hero will not contest the Gr1 FWD QEII Cup on 26 April.

Exultant could go one better

“He won’t run,” Lui said. “He’s achieved a lot this season and we feel he needs a rest now to refresh his mind and let him develop. He’ll have a summer break and then we’ll prepare him for next season.”

Golden Sixty dominated the Four-Year-Old Classic Series – winning all three legs – in the first quarter of this year and will down tools for a well-deserved break with a record of seven wins this term from as many starts.

That news boosted the prospects of last year’s FWD QEII Cup (2000m) runner-up Exultant being able to go one place better for trainer Tony Cruz.

Hong Kong racing continues at Sha Tin on Sunday.
