Victoria Derby winner makes Hong Kong debut

Last year’s Victoria Derby winner Extra Brut will make his Hong Kong debut at Happy Valley on Wednesday night.

The former Darren Weir-trained galloper was sold to Hong Kong interests earlier this year and is now in the hands of successful trainer Frankie Lor.



After winning the Victoria Derby, the Doomsday stallion ran a creditable third in the Group One McKinnon Stakes (2000m) on the quick back-up.

He was then spelled for the summer and returned to the track in February this year.

He resumed in the Group Three CS Hayes Stakes (1400m), finishing down the track, then stepped out in the Group One Australian Guineas (1600m) where he was disappointing, finishing near the tail of the field.

Since transferring to the Lor stables, he has placed in a barrier trial and in his latest effort, finished just 2.5 lengths behind leading galloper Champion’s Way in a Sha Tin trial.

He will line in the last race of the evening at Wednesday night’s meeting at Happy Valley where he will be partnered by Zac Purton.



A bad draw in gate 11, the local market has him as a $15 chance in the event with the Danny Shum-trained Playa Del Puente currently the $2.90 favourite.

Racingbase.com.au have put the John Moore-trained Buddies as their top selection for the race, currently showing $8.30 with the local market.
