'I have no regrets. Racing has been very good to me'

Eddie Lo (right) was anything but traumatised in the wake of yesterday's surprise resignation of his licence to train. Lo, 46, has been training for 17 seasons and feels the time is right for a change in professional direction.

Trainer Eddie Lo may not have the force of numbers to train but there are a few in the yard that are shaping with promise including Star Of Shantou, who won the second of two dirt barrier trials at Sha Tin yesterday.

Allan warned over transfers

Ivan Allan was warned yesterday to stop using other yards as a temporary 'depot' when his stable strength exceeded the maximum of 60 horses. The stewards said the practice was 'unsatisfactory and must cease' after Allan was found to have removed five horses from his yard over the past 14 months before taking them back within a matter of weeks.

Ownership issue merits further inquiry

The stewards' inquiry into the bona fides of ownership of the three racehorses, Tekon Perfect, Pretty Baby and Golden King will resume at Happy Valley racecourse at 2pm today. The inquiry was opened briefly on Wednesday night at the Happy Valley meeting when the stewards interviewed trainer Eddie Lo and Tekon Perfect was subsequently withdrawn from his race.

Premier result in the offing for Lo

Eddie Lo is one of the quiet achievers in Hong Kong, but he always seems to pick up a useful juvenile each season, and that could well be the case again with his unraced gelding Premier Speed. The son of Al Akbar has been catching the eye in his work in recent weeks and he certainly moved with some promise in his barrier trial on the turf last week.

Sponsor's bonus for Century

Green Century yesterday repaid another $1 million slice of his mammoth price tag without even running. Eddie Lo's son of Danehill, last year's $3.8 million top lot at the Piaget International Sale, was confirmed as the winner of the lucrative sponsor's bonus after last-gasp efforts by two of his nearest challengers failed to overhaul him.

Make it a Splendid occasion

A superb day's racing is on offer at Sha Tin today, with a number of highly competitive events on the 10-race National Day card. But it may pay to stick with Wong Tang-ping's Splendid Patrol in the fourth event when looking for the best bet of the day.

'I don't feel I've had a proper chance to show what I can do ... I think I could do much better now I know the place'

South African jockey Francois Naude finally opened his Hong Kong account at the 69th attempt with victory on Nanning Treasure at a damp Sha Tin last night and then hit out at 'certain people I put my faith in and who let me down' as he reflected on his baptism of fire in Hong Kong's ultra-competitive riding ranks.

Bruin can reign supreme again

Geoff Lane's last-start winner Bruin Supreme looks safe banker material in the second leg of the TT on tomorrow's mixed card at Sha Tin.

Trainer Lo can make your Day

It's My Day can outsprint them and justify banker status in the St Andrew's Challenge Quaich which concludes tomorrow night's Happy Valley Triple Trio.

Racing is out on the C course and that usually, especially in these minimum 1,000-metre sprints, puts an even greater emphasis on racing up on the speed or on the rails.

Silver shines under Leung's patient care

Silver Collector appears to go from strength to strength in readiness for next Wednesday's crack at a Sha Tin dirt hat-trick.

The Andy Leung Ting-wah-trained near white speedster was out of sorts early this season and failed when tried over farther.

Fradd to the four again

Prolific Club Jockey Robbie Fradd lit up Sha Tin last night with a magical 612-1 four-timer.

The accomplished South African took the opening two events on Gary Ng Ting-keung's improved City Fortune and Eddie Lo's consistent Scenic Star before he helped Alex Wong Siu-tan's William's Surpass gain a deserved success in the fourth.
