  Trainer Kok off to a flyer in New Year

SINGAPORE:  Jan 1, 2018

 
SPEEDY DRAGON winning the New Year Cup - SNTC photo
 

SPEEDY DRAGON has always shown promise early in his career, winning four of his first seven starts from late 2014 to end 2015.

But in a career plagued by injuries, the American gelding wasn't able to demonstrate his true potential although he did pick two more wins from just five runs in 2016.

Last year, SPEEDY DRAGON faced the starter just four times. Two recent runs, however, must have helped the gelding got back to fitness as indicated by him winning the New Year Cup at Kranji here today.

Ridden by A'Isisuhairi Kassim, the six-year-old was as expected neglected in the betting in the Group 3 1200m event. Settling in midfield early, his rider made a forward move round the home bend when the pace slowed down.

The pair hit the front at the top of the straight and went on to win easily by 2 1/4 lengths and paid $180 for a win.

It was a great start to the new season for trainer David Kok who endured his worst season in 2017 with just 11 winners.

"Itís been a tough year, and letís hope this Group win is a good sign of better things to come, especially as itís on New Yearís Day," said Kok.

"This horse has had three knee chip surgeries and to see him win today is a big thrill."
