Size eyes Dubai with Kiwi speedster

Trainer John Size may be forced to look further afield with his New Zealand-bred sprinting ace Amazing Kids (Falkirk).

He produced the son of Falkirk, who as Cousin Colin was a juvenile winner for Awapuni trainer Lisa Latta, for a barnstorming win in the Gr.3 Bauhinia Sprint Trophy Handicap at Sha Tin on Sunday.

Size said the Gr.2 Centenary Sprint Cup on January 30 would be the next port of call for Amazing Kids, but limited options between then and the Gr. 1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize in May could force him to look at overseas options.

“I spoke to the owner last week and, provided he’s fit and well, we will look at the Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai. They’ve extended it from 1000 to 1200 metres and it would be a good race for him, I think. 

“He’s shown that he can accelerate well down the straight and nothing really fazes him so he would be the right type of horse to travel.”
