Hong Kong Jockey Club CEO Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges mentioned seriously looking at ways of making it easier for South African horses to compete overseas. His connections mentioned a possible tilt at the G1 Prix de La Foret and the GI Breeders’ Cup Mile. And the chestnut colt? The star of the moment? All he wanted to do was get out of the rain, head for his warm stable and start munching a very big bunch of carrots.
