  Golden Monkey gains sweet revenge on Ghalib

SINGAPORE:  JuL 7, 2024

GOLDEN MONKEY exacted sweet revenge on GHALIB when he won the Kranji Stakes A event over 1200m at Kranji here today.

When the pair last met in a similar event over 1400m three weeks ago in which only four horses faced the starter, GHALIB beat fast-finishing GOLDEN MONKEY by one and a half lengths.

The shorter trip today saw only six horses in the line-up and jockey Ryan Curatolo made sure GOLDEN MONKEY was up with the pace throughout.

At the 200m, GOLDEN MONKEY had the two front runners, pacemaker SKY EYE and GHALIB, covered.

After GHALIB beat off SKY EYE, GOLDEN MONKEY immediately staked his claim and raced to the front to win by half a length. SO HI CLASS finished third, just like he did three weeks ago.

"I was a bit nervous today after what happened at his last start, but at least the race was run more genuinely and we had our chance at them," said trainer Tim Fitzsimmons.

"Hes (GOLDEN MONKEY) going really well and hes got a lot of things ahead of him.

"Hes the only horse in my stable that makes me nervous because he means so much to me.

"What made a difference today was the faster pace," said Curatolo. "They went a bit faster and I was able to find myself just behind GHALIB and tracked him all the way.

"Were on the Long Course and when my horse got to him (GHALIB), we just had to maintain it. Hes (GOLDEN MONKEY) got a big heart."

Placed in three of five starts in Australia, GOLDEN MONKEY has now won eight of his 23 runs in Singapore, including the Derby last year.
