Myboycharlie three year-old Happy Surveys has maintained his unbeaten record in Hong Kong with another impressive victory at Happy Valley on Wednesday evening.
Champion jockey Joao Moreira drove the promising sprinter through a gap in the straight to win the Le French May Trophy (1200m) by a half-length from King Of Household (Testa Rossa). “Both of his races have worked out well and with the wet conditions they spread out and he got plenty of room,” trainer John Size said. “He looks like he could win again on that.”
The race caller was also impressed with Happy Survery’s sprint on the straight saying, “Happy Surveys has got a big engine though! He’s rapidly overhauling King Of Household.” Watch the race here: http://racing.hkjc.com/racing/video/play.asp?type=replay-full&date=20150520&no=05&lang=eng
