|Leading Hong Kong owner
Apollo Ng has continued his assocation with the famous Twiglet family when he purchased
the Twig Moss's colt by Octagonal during the final session of the Australian Easter
Yearling Sale in Sydney this afternoon.
like all Hong Kong face followers love Fairy King Prawn. And why wouldn't they! The son of
Danehill is been the Hong Kong Horse of the Year twice and he has been a three time
champion sprinter and miler in that same country.
"You can say we are a big fan of the family," Ng
said with a smile. "I remember seeing Twiglet win the Furious Stakes in great style.
And our group also bought Easy Rocking and Fairy King Prawn," he added.
Offered by Willow Park Stud acting as agent for Catherine
Remond, the colt is the third purchase at the sale for Apollo Ng.
"I've bought three under my own name and our group
altogether have picked up thirteen," Ng added.
"He really is a lovely type as well," Ng reported.
"He's well balanced and a beautifully conformed individual."
The colt will be trained by Hong Kong trainer Ricky Yui.
"He is a lovely type and I'm exciting about being able
to train him," Yui, who is the trainer of Jeune King Prawn said.
