Teetan And Hewitson Win At The Valley

Big day at Sha Tin on Sunday

Karis Teetan lavished rich praise on Howdeepisyourlove after John Size’s talented three-year-old capped a stunning debut season by overcoming difficulty to win in the Class 2 Seoul Handicap at Happy Valley on Wednesday.

Securing a HK$1 million PPG Bonus in addition to HK$1.5 million in prize money, the Deep Field gelding slotted his fourth win of the season, clocking 1m 08.82s in defying Rock Ya Heart by a neck in a pulsating finale to the card.

“He had a bit of interference in the run today when he was forced to go down to the rail when I was happy to stay one-off to get a smooth run and it was his quality that got him through,” Teetan said.

“It’s massive for a three-year-old to win a Class 2. The quality is there – he’s a nice, young horse and I’m grateful for Mr Size and the horse’s owners for their support.”

Teetan’s assessment of Howdeepisyourlove was echoed by Size.

“He’s a little bit young to be doing what he’s doing but his ability is helping him a lot, so that’s what it is all about – he looks like he’s got some quality,” the 11-time Hong Kong Champion Trainer said.

“He does the same all of the time and he’s developing into a good horse – he’s doing his job properly, so we’ll just keep going.”

Boosting his tally of wins to 44 for the season, Teetan also prevailed on Telecom Speed for Me Tsui in the first section of the Class 4 Daejeon Handicap (1200m). Tsui has seven wins for the season so far.

Snowalot’s consistency was rewarded with a second win in four starts when the Contributer gelding triumphed in the second section of the Class 4 Daejeon Handicap (1200m) for David Hayes.

Finishing powerfully under Lyle Hewitson, Snowalot notched his second win over the course and distance.

  • Hong Kong racing continues on Sunday (30 April) at Sha Tin with FWD Champions Day and the running of the Gr1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m), Gr1 FWD Champions Mile (1600m) and Gr1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m).
