HONG KONG'S French connection continued unabated at Happy Valley last night with Gerald Mosse in brilliant treble form yet again while his compatriot Eric St Martin partnered his first winner in the territory. Mosse's 179-1 treble came via Wong Tang-ping's Call Me Horse in the fourth, Lawrie Fownes' Irene's Pet in the fifth and John Moore's Amigo in the last. He has now ridden an incredible 14 winners from just seven meetings and is already in fifth place in the standings. Mosse beamed: ''I can't remember the last time I was in such terrific form. This is fantastic stuff at the moment and long may my Midas touch continue.'' The Mosse magic certainly rubbed off on the enigmatic Call Me Horse who was losing his maiden tag at the 39th time of asking - but the first that Mosse has ridden him. The brilliant French rider made all the running on Irene's Pet from his inside draw to comfortably account for Ellen's Voyage. The success took Fownes to 24 winners for the season but he still trails Moore by one in their private battle for second behind clear leader, Ivan Allan. Mosse was seen at his patient best in the last which was run at a hectic pace, allowing him to swoop home late and decisively on Moore's Amigo. St Martin broke his duck in the territory when Green Peace took last night's opening event. St Martin, 28, is here as a temporary stable jockey to Brian Kan Ping-chee following regular retained rider Felix Coetzee's return to South Africa to sort out domestic problems. St Martin made all the running on Green Peace but wisely kept enough up his sleeve to repel American Challenge by 11/2 lengths. ''It's great to get off the mark. Let's hope there's a few more to come,'' beamed St Martin who rode last year's Arc de Triomphe winner, Urban Sea, for local businessman David Tsui. For good measure, Eric Legrix added to the French run of winners when scoring on Geoff Lane's Shining Star in the sixth. Lane will be back at Happy Valley early this morning to face a crucial licensing committee hearing where his future in the territory will be discussed. Tiger's Spirit became the first horse to break a minute on the equitrack when shattering the 1,030-metre record on the dirt. David Oughton's seven-year-old made all the running in the third event under Mick Kinane to score by 13/4 lengths from the fast-finishing Duet Danseurs. In victory, he clocked a scintillating 59.3 seconds to clip fully 0.8 of a second or some four lengths from All-Winners' previous best for 1,030 metres on the artificial surface Oughton said: ''We've known all along that he would almost certainly go very well on the equitrack as he has so much natural speed. ''Indeed, this is probably the surface on which he will be seen to most effect. ''But he's spent most of his career in Class One and just hasn't been eligible for a sprint on the equitrack.'' Only Class Two races are programmed on the dirt and Tiger's Spirit is still in Class One. But he took advantage of a voluntary demotion to contest last night's Class Two event. The second section of the Class Six handicap was won in facile style by Kenny Kam's Fortune Collect in fully 0.9 of a second faster than Green Peace which translates to about five lengths.
