Price Bloodstock’s Champion’s Way is heading down the right path to live up to his ambitious name after keeping his unbeaten record intact at Sha Tin on Sunday.

The John Size-trained three-year-old had looked good in Class 4 with wins at his first two race appearances and the made the switch to the bigger track and a class rise with ease despite an awkward wide barrier.

In the hands of new jockey Regan Bayliss, Champion’s Way raced wide but had some cover behind another runner before letting down impressively to put up a convincing margin in the straight and make it three from three.

His wins have all come at 1200m but Size sees a future for him beyond that distance as he matures.

“I spoke to Regan at length about the wide draw but the rain helped with that and he handled it quite well,” Size said. “This horse is scopey and might just go a bit further than 1200m. He idles down once he sees the front but if he has something to chase for longer that will help his chances of running out a longer trip.”

Nicely-bred by Hinchinbrook out of a Redoute’s Choice mare, Champion’s Way has now banked over $1.8 million in his three appearances and gives every impression that best is still a way off in the future.
