ANOTHER member of the Moore racing dynasty etched his name onto the coveted Hong Kong Derby trophy when Makarpura Star took yesterday's highlight of the racing calendar at a sodden Sha Tin. Trainer John Moore, son of the legendary George, was immediately greeted by brother Gary - the former multi-champion jockey - as the Tony Cruz-ridden 2-1 favourite returned to victory celebrations. For John Moore, the four-time champion handler known for his meticulous professionalism, it was his first victory in the $5.5-million Derby after nine seasons training in the territory. 'It's great to win and I can tell you this there were a few anxious moments in the straight,' beamed Moore. 'But there was no question of any Derby jinx.' About 60,770 made their way to Sha Tin to watch the race, with another 8,326 using the cross-betting facilities at Happy Valley. A total of $1.29 billion was wagered on the nine-race Derby card.
