Price Bloodstock product Supreme Witness returned to Class 5 at Sha Tin on Sunday and got “his” jockey back and the result was the same as the last time the indicators all lined up on September 9, with another tough win.
Karis Teetan jumped on Tony Cruz-trained Supreme Witness for the first time that day and the gelding put up a tough 1400m win after working midrace then was unplaced three times in Class 4 afterwards.
“I didn’t ride him in those last three starts in Class 4 but he wasn’t beaten far and didn’t have a lot of luck going his way,” Teetan said. “Coming back down to Class 5, he was able to get the front and just dominate the race this time.”
Teetan went straight to the front and that was the last he saw of his opposition to make his record in the grade two wins from three starts and his record 2 from 2 for the Mauritian Magician.
“I said to Tony I think he’s getting better. This win was better than the last one, he did it quite easily,” Teetan explained. “Last season, he wasn’t mature enough when he was racing in Class 4 and then he had no luck the last few, so his record does not look great in Class 4. But I’m sure that if he could get the same run in front as he had today, and with the light weight he’ll have, he can definitely win in the next class up.”
