08/02/02 Last Start Group One Winner Sold to Hong Kong
r6deserteagle.jpg (12221 bytes)Last start Group One winner Desert Eagle will arrive in Hong Kong on the weekend and join the John Size stable after being sold recently.

The gelding, who was trained in Melbourne by Mathew Ellerton, won the Group One Emirates Stakes on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington last November.

A winner of five of his thirteen starts the son of Hurricane Sky, Desert Eagle is the winner of two other listed races and narrowly missed further Cup Carnival glory when running second in the Yallambee Stud Stakes (G3) on Derby Day.

Former Group One Racing Club owned galloper Neptune's Journey will be transferred from Lindsay Park to David Hayes' Hong Kong stables to continue his immediate career.

r6deserteagle2.jpg (7353 bytes)A Group One runner-up in the Australian Guineas at this time last year, he is by Dolphin Street and is the winner of two races. The best being a restricted race at Sandown in Melbourne.

Neptune's Journey was also narrowly beaten in the Group Two Shannon's Classic over 1800 metres.

Another former Australian galloper heading to the Hayes stable is the Royal Abjar galloper Royal Retrieve.

Despite being a maiden in his first five starts he then hit top form by winning six of his next seven starts. During the string of success he won a listed race as well as taking the Group Two WA Guineas over 1600 metres.

At his only attempt in Group One class to date he finished a close up fifth to the top class Perth galloper Old Comrade in the weight-for-age Fruit 'n' Veg Stakes. In that race Royal Retrieve was only beaten two and a half lengths.

The last start Victorian winner Cafe Strip, a three-year-old by the ill-fated Snippets, is yet to be named and he will also join the Size stable.

As reported earlier this week former Perth based star Classic Cut has been renamed and will join the David Hill stable. He will be known in Hong Kong by the racing name of Seasons Treasure.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
