Missing farrier casts a cloud over trackwork

THE lot of the Hong Kong farrier is not an arduous one. Well, not by the standards of many involved in racing both locally and overseas. It came as something of a surprise to learn that there are no farriers on duty at trackwork every morning. That's the pre-dawn time when racing's professionals turn up to do their daily toil . . .

Pleasant run to continue

FORMER champion trainer David Hill had a welcome winner with Fat City on Wednesday night and his season generally swings into top gear as we enter the second half of the campaign, writes Robin Parke.
