Winning treble for Windsor Park Stallions at Shatin
12 MAR 2018 | BY RACE NEWS
The first of the farm's stallions to get the ball rolling was Falkirk when his brilliant son Amazing Kids captured the night's premier event, the $2,500,000 Singapore Turf Club Trophy over 1200m.
The win was made even more impressive by Amazing Kids' very fast time of 1.08.3 while carrying top weight of 133Ibs.
Amazing Kids is now gearing up for a number of potential options, including the Gr.1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m) on 29 April, while he also holds an entry for the Gr.1 Al Quoz Sprint (1200m) in Dubai on 31 March.
Hot on the heels of his barn-mate, it was Rip Van Winkle’s turn to shine next with his son Sun Touch leading all the way in the Merlion Handicap for a comfortable 2 and ¾ length win over 1400m, making it two wins from his last three starts despite the class rise.
Rip Van Winkle’s progeny have been in top form of late, also siring a host of winners in Australia and New Zealand recently.
Last but not least, the final race on the Shatin program went the way of Thorn Park’s son Everest who took the 1600m contest with another bold front running display, giving his jockey Mattew Poon an armchair ride and carving out the mile in the slick 1.34.1.
