Ocean Park go­ing overseas

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Dragon, a son of Waikato Stud stal­lion Pins, added the Hong Kong In­ter­na­tional Mile to his tally of ma­jor wins.

The new pur­chase will be trained in Hong Kong by Ricky Yiu and will race in the mauve with white crossed sashes and red cap Hen­nessy sta­ble colours that have been dis­played with such dis­tinc­tion in the past year by Ocean Park.

‘‘An­drew reck­ons they’re lucky colours so we’re happy to share them and let some of the luck rub off onto his Hong Kong horses,’’ said Gary.

Back on the home front, dare I re­mind read­ers that Christ­mas is fast ap­proach­ing, but I will for the sake of high­light­ing the Mata­mata Rac­ing Club’s De­cem­ber 19 twi­light meet­ing.

Less than a week out from Christ­mas, the eigh­trace pro­gramme be­gin­ning at 3pm through to 7pm of­fers the ideal op­por­tu­nity to so­cialise with work­mates and friends.

Race­go­ers have the choice of car boot spots, mini mar­quees and var­i­ous other pack­ages to get the fes­tive sea­son off to a con­vivial start.

So log on to mata­mata rac­ing­club.co.nz or con­tact the club of­fice at 888 8898 and con­firm your place at one of Mata­mata’s most pop­u­lar race­days.
