Price Bloodstock sprinter Sight Success completed the “grand slam” at Sha Tin on Sunday, with his impressive victory on the dirt giving him wins on all three of Hong Kong’s racing surfaces.

Sight Success had already won at Sha Tin on the main track and the turf at Happy Valley, but this time led all the way on the dirt in what was his best performance yet and an indication there is more to come.

He seems to be getting on very well with Brazilian jockey Vagner Borges and had nearly three lengths between himself and the nearest chaser on the line.

“He’s very straight forward, he has the speed to make his own luck and he is certainly versatile,” said trainer John Size, after the gelding’s sixth victory from 13 starts and now his third win in Class 2. “Sight Success is going very well. He’ll be rated over 100 now and things will get more difficult but no-one could be unhappy with the job that he has done so far. He seems to be enjoying the cooler weather and, you never know, the way he won today he might just win another one.”

Sight Success is one of two winners this season, with Sight Spirit, for the combination of Price Bloodstock and long-term client Tam Wing-kun and took the five-year-old’s prizemoney earnings to just short of $7 million in less than a year of racing.
