Havana Gold colt placed in Hong Kong Derby

Sunny Speed, formerly known as Crack On Crack On when trained in Britain, promoted his sire Havana Gold on the International stage when third in the 2019 Hong Kong Derby on Sunday.

The chestnut colt out of Mujadil mare Almunia had won the 2018 Britannia Handicap for Clive Cox, and he elevated his form further when beaten a length and a quarter by New Zealand-bred Furore at Sha Tin.

Ridden by Irishman Neil Callan, the John Moore-trained Sunny Speed took a keen hold in touch before making his effort over a furlong out. He kept on well but just lost out on second spot by a short head.

As it happens, a son of a past Tweenhills stallion filled the runner-up as former Irish-trained Waikuku is by Harbour Watch.

Sunny Speed was bred by Whitwell Bloodstock and changed hands in Europe as a foal, yearling and breezer. His new connections purchased him in training from Paul and Clare Rooney, and we wish them them the best of luck - it will be fascinating to continue to track his progress in the Far East.
