Pace With Wing
All the governors have been patrons of HKJC under British Administration.
1966-10-15 was the opening day of the race season.
FLYAWAY landed its inaugural victory by half-length.
Lady David Trench led in the winner with greetings.
It was trained by E K Tokmakoff and ridden by Derek T C Cheng.
But this horse ran only two or three years before its retirement.
