SUMMARY

 

SILENT WITNESS is the genuine hero, an equine superstar, dominating the world stage and leading Hong Kong Racing to international glory and recognition.

 

2003 and 2004, he was the twice winner of the Hong Kong Sprint Triple Crown as well as the International Group One Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sprint.

 

2005, he also won the Group One Sprinters Stakes in Japan and achieved a record 17 consecutive wins, all the more remarkable because they came from his first 17 career starts.

 

At his peak he was given the international rating of 123, ranking him the top-rated turf sprinter in the world. He is now honourably retired, on a farm in Australia.
