Christmas 2010 heralded a turning point for CLANGALANG who has popped up with a number of winners, plus stakes horses in the past few weeks.
The appropriately named Ho Ho Life (below) has paralleled the form with a neat victory at Hong Kong’s Happy Valley on Wednesday (12 January) for trainer CH Yip.
A 4YO gelding from the Seattle Dancer mare Gaelic Jig, Ho Ho Life was exported to Hong Kong in November 2009 after his only two starts in Australia resulted in a Ballarat victory and third at Cranbourne.
And while it took him a bit more time to find his feet in Hong Kong, Ho Ho Life has – this season – compiled two seconds and two wins from as many outings.
Sold for just $3,000 in Adelaide three years ago, Ho Ho Life has now won over $HK1m (approx $A130,000).
