Hot to Trot

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

t seems Able Friend, the strap­ping chest­nut stal­lion owned by Cor­nel and Tisa Li (pic­tured left, hold­ing tro­phy), can’t put a hoof wrong. The race­horse claimed victory in the Cham­pi­ons Mile at Sha Tin Race­course on May 3, con­tin­u­ing a jaw-drop­ping win­ning streak that saw him tri­umph at the Longines Hong Kong Mile in De­cem­ber, as well as the Ste­wards’ Cup and the Queen’s Sil­ver Ju­bilee Cup. The five-year-old horse, trained by John Moore and guided to victory by jockey João Mor­eira, has been con­firmed for a trip to Eng­land to run in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal As­cot on June 16. “He’s just out­stand­ing. He just does ev­ery­thing prop­erly,” says Mor­eira. “He’s a dream horse.” Ti­mothy Fok, pres­i­dent of the Sports Fed­er­a­tion and Olympic Com­mit­tee of Hong Kong, pre­sented the Cham­pi­ons Mile tro­phy to the proud own­ers.
