South Africa’s Hong Kong-based son Tony Millard enjoyed a stellar Korean raid when his charge, the 8yo NZ-bred Super Jockey (Sandtrap-Pennies In Heaven) won the 1200m US$700,000 Gr1 Korea Sprint on Sunday at Let’s Run Park in Seoul.

Although Millard expressed concerns about the depth of the sand on Friday, his charge made light work of the heavy track.  Jumping from the no 2 gate, Karis Teetan rode a beautifully executed race, keeping his mount handy throughout, before producing a final kick for home to win by 4 lengths.

Before departing Sha Tin, Super Jockey completed a sensational barrier trial that had many observers of the opinion that the gelding was on top form and Millard, who achieved a milestone 500 Hong Kong winners back in April commented “He is a relatively unburnt horse, I have always been conservative with him. I don’t have an abundance of good horses, so I have protected him. I haven’t raced him a great deal and I think it has kept him young.”

The connections have played future plans close to their chest, but a Dubai campaign looks a likely target.
