Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Cup 2011 Summary


Wow, what an exciting day at Hong Kong's beautiful Sha Tin racecourse with 60,000 people in attendance. Four great finishes in the big races and a perfect 13 for 13 top 3 finishes for descendants of Northern Dancer (bred in 8 different countries on 4 different continents). With a total purse of 68 million HK$ the grandkids brought in another $8 Million US$. Just when it was looking like some other bloodlines were starting to take hold the Norhern Dancer genes had a dominant year in 2011.

That's a pic of Dunaden winning the Vase earlier today completing his big double of the Melbourne Cup and Hong Kong Vase and Lucky Nine edging out Entrapment in the Sprint. Some of the many great photos on the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Cup site (click on to enlarge them).

Added the pics from the CP site of Able One winiing the Mile and California Memory winning the Cup and fireworks after the Cup.

The individual race results are just below this post - exciting stuff.
