SUMMARY

 

An disappointment for GILGIT‘s narrow defeat by SUPERIOR GOLD (BA063) 1800 metre Centenary Cup.

 

Due to the weight it carried, it could not win that became its last but special and the most important race.

 

George Moore reiterated that, “GILGIT is a very good racehorse“.

 

GIGLGIT’s stud in USA proven to be another disappointment as GILGIT II was not up to the expectation later in its runs in Hong Kong.
