THE family feud that rocked Hong Kong racing ended over a cup of coffee at Sha Tin yesterday. Trainer Derek Cruz and international riding ace Tony Cruz sat down for a drink and a chat after almost a year of silence - and the results could be dramatic. Said Derek: ''Tony will be riding for me again, but I don't know exactly when or what. ''I don't want to make a big deal out of it. We got together for a nice little chat and we are brothers. Hong Kong is a very small place and it's just good to know that you can talk things over again. ''It was a quiet morning at the track with hardly anybody about and Tony was walking by. He just said to me his neck was hurting like hell and one thing led to another and we went off for a cup of coffee,'' said Derek. The recurrence of a neck injury prevented Tony from riding on Wednesday night and he will miss tomorrow's Sha Tin meeting. The position of Derek's retained jockey, English rider Gary Carter, will not be affected by the reunion. ''I want to make the point clear that there is no hassle between Gary and me,'' Derek said. ''There have been a lot of wild stories but I am happy with him and we work along well together. ''Because it's Hong Kong, you get a lot of pressure. But some of my horses are high in the handicaps and some aren't as good as people think. But Gary's with me and I will still be looking to retain a jockey again next year,'' said Derek. Tony was not available for comment last night.
