More Hong Kong Success for My Darling

Turangga Farm can lay claim to having sold one of the all-time greats into Hong Kong in Champion Miler Able Friend and while promising four year-old My Darling may never quite reach those heights, he is a progressive horse for the John Size stable.

A $26,000 Inglis Classic purchase from the Turangga Farm draft for John Thompson, Mossman gelding My Darling was sold into Hong Kong after winning his only trial at Randwick in December 2014.

He has since won five of 12 starts and looked good on Sunday when surging clear at Sha Tin to win as he pleased.

Sent out favourite, he powered away over 1400 metres in the Class Two event to win by a length and three-quarters with Joao Moreira in the saddle.

Bred and sold by Turangga Farm, My Darling is the first winner for unraced Syrian Bride, a full sister to Group I VRC Victoria Derby winner Kibbutz.
