  Nova Strike finally lands a group win

SINGAPORE:  Dec 3, 2017

After being placed four times in numerous attempts at group races, NOVA STRIKE finally claimed one when he scored a  runaway win in the Group 3 Colonial Chief Stakes at Kranji here today.

And it provided three-time Singapore champion jockey Manoel Nunes with a fitting farewell to Singapore racing. "I will take a break now, take a flight to Brazil tonight, and I will see what happens," said the Brazilian.

And NOVA STRIKE is one horse who Nunes has enjoyed the most successes with, having ridden him 21 times for six wins.

Earlier this year, the New Zealand gelding finished third to INFANTRY in the Singapore Derby and was somewhat disappointing in four runs since.

Today's final group race of the 2017 season might not have as strong a field as he has faced this year but NOVA STRIKE still had to get the job done. And what a performance he put up!

Tracking pacemaker LIM'S CRUISER from the start, NOVA STRIKE raced past the leader with ease in the home stretch to win by 4 1/2 lengths. It was his eighth win in 35 starts.
