One Master in line for Hong Kong

The Racing Paper - - News -

WIL­LIAM Hag­gas will con­sider a trip to Hong Kong for One Master fol­low­ing her fine ef­fort in de­feat at the Breed­ers’ Cup. Af­ter win­ning a Group Three at Tip­per­ary dur­ing the sum­mer, the daugh­ter of Fast­net Rock grabbed Group One glory with a shock vic­tory in the Prix de la Foret on Arc day at ParisLongchamp.

The four-year-old then proved that per­for­mance was no fluke last Satur­day when beaten just a length into fifth place by fel­low Bri­tish raider Ex­pert Eye, trained by Sir Michael Stoute, in the Breed­ers’ Cup Mile at Churchill Downs.

Hag­gas said: “I thought One Master ran a fan­tas­tic race from where she was drawn (stall one), be­cause the ground was at its soft- est on the in­side. She has been in­vited to Hong Kong for the Mile, so we’ll cer­tainly look at that.

“She’s only been home from Amer­ica a few days and hasn’t been rid­den yet, so we’ll see how she is, but we’ll give Hong Kong strong con­sid­er­a­tion.”

One Master was one of two run­ners in Ken­tucky for the New­mar­ket han­dler, and Queen Of Ber­muda also per­formed with credit to fin­ish fourth in the Breed­ers’ Cup Ju­ve­nile Turf Sprint in her fi­nal out­ing for the yard.

Hag­gas added: “Queen Of Ber­muda ran very well – so al­though we didn’t hit the board in terms of win­ners, I was very pleased.

“Queen Of Ber­muda is stay­ing in Amer­ica and is go­ing to be trained by Gra­ham Mo­tion.”
