SUMMARY

 

Trainer T P Wong commented that ignoring the cost of its purchase, he was impressed by the first performance of CO-TACK and perceived that it would be a promising star.

 

Among the dominance by expatriate trainers, CO-TACK thus built its own name and brighten up its trainer in the era of 1980s.

 

CO-TACK wrote lots of legendary records despite its humble background sharing the similarity of its trainer which highlights the glamorous and fascination of Horse Racing!
