Owners' patience pays dividends

Six-year-old Gold Winner finally broke the ice at his fifth run for Danny Shum Chap-shing, who said the patience of the owners was the key factor with the gelding. Gold Winner had his first start in Class Two in March 2009, but injuries have kept his career down to 16 races and hampered his ability to show his true talent. He had never run a place until yesterday but, brilliantly away from the gates, Gold Winner crossed to lead for Jacky Tong Chi-kit and never looked like being headed in the Class Four. 'One of the syndicate members is the owner of Little Bridge, so they thought they'd give me a chance with the horse but their patience has been the main thing,' Shum said. 'When he came to me earlier this season, two of his legs had problems. He's been better lately, putting blinkers on two runs ago helped him and he appreciated the give in the track.'
