Aussie Jockey Wins Hong Kong Vase 2013 Aboard Dominant

Australian jockey Zac Purton has scored a momentous win at Sha Tin, steering his mount Dominant to victory in the 2013 Hong Kong Vase yesterday.

Dominant won the race by three quarters of length in front of favourite The Fugue, who placed second, and a gallant Dunaden, who finished in third.

Purton admitted that he was shocked to claim the 2013 Hong Kong Vase against such a stellar field.

”This is one of the big races today I didn’t expect to win,” said Purton.

Dominant has won five of his 20 race starts throughout his career and has earned more than $2 million in prize money so far.

The Cacique entire was third-up in the Hong Kong Vase 2013 after two previous unplaced runs at Sha Tin earlier in the preparation.

The hard luck story of the race belonged to Red Cadeaux, who was caught four wide throughout the entirety of the race.

Trainer Ed Dunlop admitted he was disappointed with the result, but was proud of how Red Cadeaux fought on despite his circumstances.

The seven-year-old will likely return to Australia, where he only recently placed second in the Melbourne Cup for the second time, for the Sydney autumn in 2014.

“We knew he might find it hard to get in from his wide barrier but watching him stuck out where he was all the way was hard to take,” Dunlop said.

”At this stage we plan to press on with him and we are looking at Dubai and the Sydney races in the autumn for him.”
