Summary

 

Triple winner of the International Group One Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Mile, the second highest rated horse in the world at the peak of his career, he was the Hong Kong runner ever obtained the highest international score of 124, GOOD BA BA remains in our memory.
After showing initial promise as a griffin, winning the HSBC Juvenile Sprint Trophy, the American-bred International Sale graduate took a while to hit his straps fully.
That was not until his third season, when for new trainer, Andreas Schutz, he won three consecutive Class One races and in his fourth season, 07/08, the brilliant year of his racing career, he landed five consecutive races including the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Mile and the Champions Mile, both rated International Group One, and the Horse of the Year as well.

2011-07-11 , at the Hong Kong Jockey Club Champion Awards presentation ceremony, the retired former champion was given a Lifetime Achievement Award to honour his great career.
