SIGHT SUCCESS, SCORES OF FUN & YOU’REMYEVERYTHING
10 Nov 2021
The winners are flowing freely for Price Bloodstock in Hong Kong this season and a victorious treble at Happy Valley on Wednesday night was the latest high water mark.
Sight Success and Scores Of Fun, multiple race winners for long term Price Bloodstock clients Tam Wing Kun and the Fun Loving Syndicate, respectively, were the first to land before newcomer You’remyeverything made it three of the last four races on the night, each with the promise of more ahead.
John Size-trained Sight Success has already done a tremendous job in his 11 starts with 5 wins and more than $5.5 million banked in prizemoney and he showed his versatility In winning his second successive Class 2.
In his previous start, Sight Success led all the way over 1000m but this time jockey Vagner Borges allowed a rival to lead and Sight Success waited to make his move in the straight and quickly took control and went on to his fourth 1200m win, scoring at both Happy Valley and Sha Tin.
“He ran really well last time and he had improved a lot coming into this run,” said Borges, who has only the two rides on the gelding for two wins. “I knew there was a good chance of him winning again and I’m glad he did. He was just as happy sitting behind as he was leading and it was a comfortable win.
Size was also the trainer of Scores Of Fun, who was winning his fifth race from 19 starts when pounced in the final stages under Joao Moreira an hour later, taking his prizemoney to almost $6 million.
“The Fun Loving Syndicate is having plenty of fun with this guy – like Sight Success, he doesn’t run many bad races and is usually picking up a check even when he doesn’t win,” Size said. “Tonight there was plenty of pace on and Joao was able to sit back from the wide gate with Scores Of Fun and the horse again showed his willingness and did a good job with the top weight. You couldn’t say either of these horses are done winning yet.”
You’remyeverything fell into a different category as a first-time starter in Hong Kong, although he had won two from two in Australia before joining the Tony Cruz yard.
Many thought the 1200m distance might be too short for the Irish-bred four-year-old but with a good pace on, Alexis Badel settled him in the second half of the field before running over the top of the sprinters late in the race.
