Hong Kong Sprint 2012

In the 15 Million $HK Sprint it was the Japanese bred Lord Kanaloa beating out the South African bred Cerise Cherry with the Australian bred Captain Sweet finishing third. That's 3 different continents represented in what many consider the best sprint race in the world but what do they have in common - their great grandfather (our little Dancer) from Canada. The top 3 finishers in the first 2 races have come from 5 different countries and 4 different continents emphasizing the International importance of the Hong Kong Cup races and a tribute to the International reach our little Canadian sire had - it's what separates him from the other great sires of the 20th Century and will ensure his legacy into the 21st century.
