2014 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Possible for Hong Kong Cup Champ

A lucrative prize increase that has the stakes set at a staggering $4 million could be enough to lure the weekend’s Hong Kong Cup winner Akeed Mofeed to Sydney in the autumn for a shot at the Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2014.

Retirement and a lucrative career at stud are just around the corner for the Dubawi stallion who became a dual Group 1 winner on Sunday.

Ridden to perfection by their regular jockey Douglas Whyte, four-year-old Akeed Mofeed was blocked for a run able to overcome the traffic to defeat Singapore Cup champ Military Attack in the Group 1 Hong Kong Cup (2400m).

It was trainer Richard Gibson’s maiden Group 1 success and one that saw the stud value of his stable ace Akeed Mofeed soar.

To perhaps further increase their stallion potential, connections are now looking at a possible trip down under this coming Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival for the galloper.

There they would be targeted at the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick on April 26, the prize money for which has been boosted from $500,000 to a generous $4 million.

“The horse deserves his chance to race abroad and there are some nice options for him, including Australia,” Gibson told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“It’s a good time for him to travel and enhance his stud value.”

Gibson also indicated that upon their imminent retirement, standing at a stud in South Australia at the former Lindsay Park stables which are now owned by one of the horse’s connections Pam Sutong was a likely option.

Another Hong Kong International Day winner that could be Australia-bound next year is then Hong Kong Vase champion Dominant.

There’s a chance John Moore’s Cacique stallion Dominant could be transferred to the care of Aussie training team Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes for an assault on the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival riches at the end of 2014, specifically the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.

“It would be probably four months before the big cup races to make sure he has got the time to acclimatise, and hopefully he can repeat what he did here (in Hong Kong),” Moore told RSN radio.

It’s a possibility Moore bought up after the former British-trained galloper posted their maiden elite level victory in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) when ridden by Aussie expat and star Hong Kong hoop Zac Purton.
