Backbone and Glory Century yesterday stamped themselves as stars of the future with quality victories on Governor's Cup day in Macau, writes Lawrence Wadey. The Peter Leyshan-trained Backbone lifted the $420,000 feature event under an inspired ride from Gary Moore. Lucky Governor appeared to have stolen a winning break at the top of the straight but Moore saved every bit of ground on Backbone and produced the first-season import to get up in the final strides. But the win of the day had to be that of the Joe Barnes-trained Glory Century who completed a four-timer by no less than 10 lengths in the eighth event, despite getting into a speed duel with Royal Ascot winner Money Link in the early stages. A number of exciting and well-bred youngsters have been brought into the Portuguese enclave in the past couple of seasons as the increase in the quality of the Thoroughbred stock mirrors that of Hong Kong, but even allowing for that Glory Century looks an outstanding individual.
