Jun 20, 2011

Lucky Unicorn’s only runner so far in Hong Kong is now a winner, following the impressive performance of Flying Unicorn (NZ) at Sha Tin last evening.

Flying Unicorn (NZ) won the Jaeger-Lecoultre Griffin Plate (1400m) by 3.8 lengths, clocking 1.23.31.

It was the two-year-old gelding’s fourth start in Hong Kong, having placed second at his two previous outings, with a debut fourth on the 25th of April.

Flying Unicorn (NZ) (ex Redzabetta, by Centaine) is a $75,000 graduate of New Zealand Bloodstock’s 2010 Karaka Select Sale, having been offered by Fairdale Stud.

Lucky Unicorn (AUS) (Redoute’s Choice) has been represented by 10 runners from his first crop to date. Apart from Flying Unicorn (NZ), he’s also been represented by the NZ winners Pat’s Trick (NZ) and Bacio Frances (NZ) and the place getters Athenry (NZ) and Oscar Wilde (NZ).

Delbridge Racing has a promising un-raced 2-y-old by Lucky Unicorn named Luckyzeel who is currently in work with trainer Mark Kavanagh.
