Undefeated Aethero Eyes Gr1 Success
Meanwhile, Classique Legend’s gifted half-brother Aethero (Sebring-Pinocchio, by Encosta de Lago) – see above – will be ridden by light weight jockey Aldo Domeyer as trainer John Moore looks to increase the 3YOs rating in time for the Gr1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint, reported scmp.com. “He is a superstar in the making, I guarantee you he is a superstar in the making. How far he goes, we will wait and see but with respect to Hong Kong racing, he is a superstar,” Moore said. “Domeyer will ride him in the Gr2 handicap, the Premier Bowl … he will be 113 pounds so he will ride two [pounds] over. What I think would be the ideal programme is the Class Two, the Group Two and then we will wait and see, hopefully the sprint trial [Jockey Club Sprint].” Sold at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale by Tyreel Stud for $575,000, Aethero has won all three starts.
