Hong Kong's stranglehold on the international races in Singapore continued at Kranji here today when SOUTHERN LEGEND romped to a three-length victory in the S$1.5mil Kranji Mile.

For good measure, Hong Kong's other runner HORSE OF FORTUNE came in second.

The 1600m weight-for-age contest was open to international entries for the first time this year. The other foreign entry, New Zealand's entry OCEAN EMPEROR, finished eighth.

Hong Kong's entries have won the last three runnings of the Singapore Airlines International Cup MILITARY ATTACK (2013) and DAN EXCEL (2014 and 2015 and the last three staging of the KrisFlyer International Sprint LUCKY NINE (2013 and 2014) and AEROVELOCITY (2015).

"Hes a versatile horse who can handle any type of going and obviously any direction as well, as we saw tonight (they go the other way in Hong Kong)," said trainer Caspar Fownes.

"Im very happy for the connections because I had to convince the owner (Boniface Ho Ka Kui) to come here. I told him horses travel good these days, its a lot easier, just like for us, humans."

SOUTHERN LEGEND won four races in Australia including the listed Darby Munro Stakes at Rosehill before going over to Hong Kong where he has picked up four more wins.

But his best effort in Hong Kong was his third to BEAUTY GENERATION in the Group 1 Champions Mile in his last start just last month.

Based on that effort, punters sent him off the favourite in the Kranji Mile today and he duly obliged with Zac Purton in the saddle.
