Lord Kanaloa Wins 2013 Hong Kong Sprint In Career Finale

Japanese runner Lord Kanaloa has claimed the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint in dominant fashion at Sha Tin Racecourse, which took place on Sunday December 8, 2013.

The five-year-old was having his final ever race start in the 2013 Hong Kong Sprint after a stellar career.

He will now begin his time as a stallion, with his 2013 Hong Kong Sprint victory making a fitting swansong for the galloper.

Trainer Takayuki Yasuda was thrilled to see Lord Kanaloa end his career on such a high note.

“It is a great day for us, to show how good this horse is in front of so many fans,” Yasuda said.

“He will make a great stallion, and we can look forward to his offspring running here in the future.”

Lord Kanaloa was ridden by jockey Yasunari Iwata in the 2013 Hong Kong Sprint.

While he has ridden many of his country’s best horses, Iwata admitted he was especially sad to see the end of Lord Kanaloa’s racing career.

“When I arrived here his condition was good and his turf gallop went to plan,” Iwata said.

“It is a wonderful time for us, but I am sad it is his last race.”

Sadly, the race took an unfortunate turn when British galloper Jwala fell tragically and jockey Steve Drownes was transported to hospital for immediate treatment.

Sole Power placed in second position, while Frederick Engels passed the post in third.
