At Sha Tin racecourse in Hong Kong, champion 2YO colt & 4-time Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) celebrated an elite race success when 5YO German-bred gelding Pakistan Star (Shamardal-Nina Celebre, by Peintre Celebre) made it successive top-flight victories when coasting to a dominant win in the HK$10 million Gr1 Champions & Chater Cup (2400m), defeating Exultant & Gold Mount. The enigmatic but richly talented Pakistan Star improved his record to 5 wins (including the Gr1 QEII Cup) and 5 placings (including the Gr1 QEII Cup & Hong Kong Derby) from 16 starts for HK$35,656,200 in earnings.
