Hong Kong & Singapore Group Race Coverage Added
Following strong reader endorsement of Breeding&Racing's dedicated coverage of all Australian and New Zealand Group & Listed race fields, form and integrated news, this weekend marks the first intended addition of all forthcoming Group races from Hong Kong and Singapore. The first race featured is Singapore's Gr3 Jumbo Jet Trophy (1400m) at Kranji on Sunday where the Michael Clements-trained boom horse Countofmontechristo is engaged. In the planning stage for some time, the move is both recognition of the calibre of racing in those centres and the ubiquity of high class Australian & New Zealand yearlings and tried racehorses that do their racing north of Australasia. It is hoped this addition will prove beneficial to stud farms, vendors and sales companies that all have a vested interest in Hong Kong and Singapore feature racing. As a result, the popular Australia & New Zealand Weekend Stakes Schedule will henceforth be retitled Weekend Black Type Feature Schedule.
