God’s Own continues to make an impact on the Australian Third Season Sires’ chart with a Sunday double – albeit one of his winners shining at Sha Tin.
Beedeekay got the ball rolling with a thrilling win over 1206m at Bairnsdale, coming from ninth on the turn to record his first win after three previous placings.
Bred by Yallambee Stud, Beedeekay is trained by Michael Templeton and is out of the King Marauding mare, Tycoon Princess.
Meanwhile, another God’s Own 3YO in Africa Light (from the Baryshnikov mare Russian Ballet) absolutely stunned a crowd of 74,000 in the last meeting of the Hong Kong Racing Season with a blinding turn of foot to win the Being Famous Handicap over 1400m.
Ridden by Zac Purton, the God’s Own youngster (pictured above) recorded his second win on the trot after coming from the clouds over the final stages of the race.
Hong Kong racing fans will have a lot to remember as they wait to see the flashy bay next season. In the meantime, click here for look at Africa Light’s impressive performance.
