1975-11-01 Gary Moore and George Moore teamed up for 5 wins at Happy Valley out of 9 races.

2. GOTEBORG; 3. VIE EN ROSE; 5. HORSEPOWER; 6. SUPER WIN; 7. CHIEN LUNG

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The meeting was an excitement as being a benefit for the Moores.

The most pleasing moment for the first family of Hong Kong racing might have been the champion SUPERWIN trounced his rivals in the 1800 metres Race Six.

George Moore‘s effort in saddling five winners in one afternoon equalized his performance earlier that same year.

Gary Moore scored 5 wins out of 7 placed among 8 rides in 9 races.
