Good Ba Ba Aiming for Hong Kong Mile Hat Trick – Preview

This Sunday the prestigious Sha Tin racecourse is set to host the coveted Hong Kong International Raceday with the Hong Kong Mile featuring as one of the four highly anticipated Group 1 races.

A line up of 14 sensational gallopers from right across the globe are set to contest the 1600m event sponsored by Cathay Pacific. With stakes set at HK$15million (approx. AUS $2.3million) the competition will be fierce.

Odds-on favourite starting the race will be the defending champ and talented miler Good Ba Ba. ?Aiming for an unprecedented third consecutive win in the Hong Kong Mile and his seventh Group 1 victory the local hero is currently at $2.60 to complete the hat-trick.

Last year?s second and third placegetters are also returning to the track on Sunday, Able One is at $18 while Egyptian Ra sits as third favourite at $13.

The only Australian runner in the Mile this year is the John O?Shea-trained Racing To Win, currently a $17 chance to claim victory in his first international race venture. The star galloper is one of only five Group 1 champions in the final field and will be hoping to return to the winning form that saw him blitz his rivals in the Theo Marks back in September.

The other horse dominating the betting markets is the exciting local Happy Zero trained by John More, sitting as the $4 second favourite. A classy contender who is making his debut at Group 1 level and at the 1600m distance.
