Lee works his magic to correct 'terrible' behaviour
Almond Lee said Great Pegasus was so badly behaved when he arrived at his stables that he had struggled to saddle the gelding. The four-year-old subscription griffin finally broke through at his seventh start, helped in by barrier two and a box-seat ride under Keith Yeung Ming-lung. 'This horse has a terrible temperament and we couldn't even put a saddle on him for a very long time, it took a lot of work to get his head right,' Lee said. 'It was a lucky win. We drew the right gate and got the perfect run.' The win showed the horse could be perhaps stretched to a mile. 'He is by Stravinsky, and they're mostly sprinters,' Lee said. 'Maybe he will get a mile, but not just yet.'
