There isn't a lot that Singapore Turf Club can do about the weather, but the club seems to be making a proper job of its international meeting in other respects.23 May 2012 - 12:00am
Hong Kong's ageing sprint stars Sacred Kingdom and Green Birdie showed just how far they have receded from their peak as Rocket Man, a new world power in the sprinting ranks, emerged at Kranji racecourse in Singapore last night.23 May 2011 - 12:00am
Trainer Patrick Shaw is adamant Rocket Man is in better shape leading into today's Group One KrisFlyer International Sprint (1,200m) in Singapore than he was when he came up only a short-head shy of claiming the Jockey Club Sprint and Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin last December.22 May 2011 - 12:00am
Green Birdie dashed the hopes of Singaporean fans with his gritty win in the rain-soaked Group One KrisFlyer International Sprint last year, and Caspar Fownes' travelling assistant Dale Bussey hopped off his charge after trackwork yesterday morning quietly confident the under-rated galloper can go back-to-back on Sunday.20 May 2011 - 12:00am

Beating Aussie sprint stars a hefty challenge for Champion
For Hong Kong racing fans, today's clash of Absolute Champion and Takeover Target is a classic heart versus head confrontation, and if you decide to go with logic then Takeover Target selects himself.18 May 2008 - 12:00am
As a former world champion who has lived most of this season in the shadow of a shooting star called Sacred Kingdom, Absolute Champion won't get much respite in Singapore today when he lines up against the Australian fairytale horse Takeover Target.18 May 2008 - 12:00am
Trainer David Hall says the major things Absolute Champion has in his favour for tomorrow's S$1 million (HK$5.6 million) KrisFlyer Sprint in Singapore are his sheer class and will to win, attributes which may still see him prevail even though horseman's logic says the gelding's chances are forlorn.17 May 2008 - 12:00am
Sacred Kingdom's trainer and jockey will meet owner Sin Kan-yuk on Thursday to map out future plans for the world champion sprinter after his luckless defeat on Sunday.
