KEEP an eye open for Mount Sapphire after an excellent run in the first event yesterday when he finished fourth to facile winner Cruise Missile.
The 1,400-metre trip was on the short side for Mount Sapphire who worked home well for claimer Vicki C. W. Choi. This was his first run back in two months and will have him neatly set up for a longer event shortly at either course.20 Feb 1994 - 12:00am
MOUNT SAPPHIRE looks banker material in a quinella in the fourth race at this evening's Happy Valley meeting.
This young, lightly-raced gelding has improved physically over the summer and came back to simply saunter home last time out when racing over course and distance.8 Dec 1993 - 12:00am
MOUNT Sapphire (Nap) can make a winning reappearance in the fifth event at Happy Valley tonight.
He improved all through last season and looks to have continued the progress in his trackwork. I was particularly impressed by his barrier trial last Friday when he went strongly to the line, having been held up for much of the way.17 Nov 1993 - 12:00am
A PRETTY ordinary meeting coming up on the grass at Happy Valley next Wednesday but a winner is a winner is a winner and Mount Sapphire has an attractive look about him in the local riders' event.22 May 1993 - 12:00am
