Racing: A red carpet of equine stars

Racing: A red carpet of equine stars

We saw the Walker-trained three-year-old War Affair take all before him against his own age group. He was far from disgraced going down to another very good horse in Super NinetySeven in the Raffles Cup.

It was a brave decision by Walker to run the horse and made for one of the best WFA races seen in Singapore in many years.

Cash Luck gave trainer David Kok a great thrill by winning the Kranji Mile, though he was certainly helped by the way the way the race was run.

Musketeer knew the script and won the El Dorado in the colours of the famous horse, further adding to the Hideoki Takaoka legend - has there ever been a better trainer of stayers in Singapore than the master of Hokkaido?

And then there is Street Legal, who has come from Class 5 early in the year to be dominant at 2,200m. On his run in the Raffles Cup where he was not suited at WFA, under the handicap conditions of the Gold Cup and over a trip that suits, the fairy-tale may well come true for trainer Bruce Marsh.
