Outstanding Bel Esprit sprinter captured another win at Kranji on 13 November (with another Bel Esprit in Aranda running a gutsy fourth). Singapore Turf Club’s Craig Brennan was on hand to catch all the action.
Trainer Desmond Koh will look to bigger riches after Perfect Sky (below) took out the $75,000 Kranji Stakes C over 1200m on Friday night (13 November).
Ridden by Ng Kok Keong, Perfect Sky scored by ¾ length over Choisism (by Choisir) with Dynamic Dan (Danetime) the same margin away third.
Desmond Koh said he felt a bit of pressure with two strongly fancied runners on the evening.
Banks’ Gift was sent out favourite, finishing fourth in race five on the program, before Perfect Sky atoned for that defeat.
“The horses don’t know numbers,” said Koh. “We feel the pressure as they go out to race and I must say I’m relieved it is over with.”
“He (Perfect Sky) deserves his win tonight. He’s been very consistent and did run second to that good filly (Mexican Rose) last time out.
“I’ll probably just give him a bit of a break now and then look for a suitable feature race with him.
“I think he has earned that chance. He’s always consistent and should get into a feature race with a light weight.”
A 5YO son of Bel Esprit (bred by GR Bright, ML Bright & C Duffy) from the River Rough mare Time Is Hope, Perfect Sky was an A$70,000 yearling purchase (sold by Eliza Park at the 2006 Adelaide Magic Millions).
He has now raced on 20 occasions, registering six wins and six minor placings with prizemoney just short of S$300,000 for the Arowana Stable.
