REFERENCE

 

2000-12-17 Hong Kong Cup:

 

Frankie Dettori kept FANTASTIC LIGHT in striking distance;
until the final turn, where he sent the stallion ahead.
The rest of the field splayed five across, chasing after them,
but FANTASTIC LIGHT kept a strong run down the stretch for a strong win at the wire.
