Previous Racing Record in Hong Kong
Scoring at least a place in most of his Hong Kong performances contended among famous rivals from all over the world during his previous competitions globally.
He claimed prize money totally exceeding $18,000,000.
2001-12-16, he faced the strong contenders in the International Race; the Hong Kong Cup, including the 2nd runner-up at the Breeders’ Cup Mile; BACH, the first runner-up at Champion Stakes of Dubai; TOBOUGG, and the other two horses; CHOC ICE ( IRE) and TERRE A TERRE (FR).
Trainer F Doumen said that JIM AND TONIC had been perfectly fit for the races with not doubt at all, though he just got a second place in the Arch, with excusable reason of the soft ground. Then the victory of the Dubai in March was a solid prove to substantiate his strength despite aging factors.
