Dragon To Race On In NZ

Wednesday, 12th November 2014

Ambitious Unicorn (Pins-Peep Show, by O'Reilly) will continue his three-year-old career in New Zealand following his impressive debut success at Awapuni yesterday, reports NZ Racing Desk. The gelding is trained by Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman for bloodstock agent Bruce Perry and the Hong Kong-based Anderson Lam, who races champion galloper Ambitious Dragon with his father Johnson. "Murray and Andrew have got a high opinion of this horse and the plan at this stage is to race him here through his three-year-old season," Perry said. "He's a mile type of horse and hopefully he might be good enough to go to Australia later." Perry was responsible for sourcing multiple Gr1 winner and dual Hong Kong Horse of the Year Ambitious Dragon for the Lams. "We were keen to get another by Pins and went to the sale and found this one," he said. Ambitious Unicorn, who is the first foal from the unraced O'Reilly mare Peep Show, a grand-daughter of Gr1 Lion Brown Sprint winner Mrs Selleck, was a NZ$90,000 purchase from Waikato Stud's Select Sale draft at Karaka last year.
