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.'
