Throwback Thursday Race Of The Day - 09/12/21

Hong Kong Vase

Today we are looking back at an International race that takes place every year around this time of the season and it's the Group One Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin.

The 2020 renewal of the prestigious race was taken by the globe-trotting superstar Mogul, who was always destined to shine in this company having been bought for 3.4 million Guineas.

Being a very up and down horse in England, Ireland and around the world for Aidan O'Brien, one of his biggest successes to date came in this race last year.

Also on his winning roster include a Group One Grand Prix De Paris, Group Three Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and the Group Two Champion Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown.

He bids for more glory in the Sha Tin feature this season, but is much more of an outsider to win this season.
