In Hong Kong yesterday, Coolmore shuttler Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added a Gr1 triumph when Australian-bred 4YO Floral Pegasus (Fusaichi Pegasus-Crown Crest, by Mill Reef) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in the HK$8 million (A$1.3m) Gr1 HK Classic Mile (1600m) for 4YOs at Sha Tin. Floral Pegasus (ridden by Gerald Mosse for trainer Tony Cruz) defeated Viva Macau & All's Well (City On A Hill-Alot Of Music, by Success Express). Floral Pegasus (a $500,000 yearling at the 2004 Inglis Easter Sale) was HK's Champion Griffin for the 2005-06 season; he set a Happy Valley 1650m track record (1min 38.7sec) last September & finished 3rd in the Gr2 HK International Mile Trial (1600m) at Sha Tin in November. Most recently he won the Gr3 Chinese Club Challenge Cup (1400m) at Sha Tin & overall now boasts 8 wins & 5 placings from 15 starts for over HK$10 million (A$1.6m) prize-money.
