Impressive Lonhro Wins Again in Hong Kong

Jul 18, 2012

Scoring his second win from three starts at Sha Tin during the last meeting of the Hong Kong racing season was promising four year-old Be-Fabulous.

The Lonhro gelding flew home to win the 1200 metre Class Three sprint for astute trainer Ricky Yiu, his win following on from a dominant victory at the same venue last month.

Be-Fabulous provided Yiu with a career milestone in becoming the 500th winner he has trained.

"I'm happy, this has been one of my best seasons, in terms of the number of winners, and I guess these things are always a little bit exciting. Of course, I knew it was coming up and if it didn't happen today, I would have got it next season," Yiu told South China Morning Post.

"The horse himself, I like him. Today from the better draw, he got cover and was more relaxed than when he had to push forward from the outside last time when he won. I think he'll make it into a genuine Class Two horse next season and I'll gradually step him up from 1,200m - I think he will get a mile eventually."

Sold in New Zealand as a yearling for $100,000, Be-Fabulous (pictured) was bred by Yarraman Park in partnership with Tim Hughes and is a half-brother to stakes-placed Happy Hussy and Prix du Sang.
