The final fixtures of the Hong Kong racing season,usually take place at Sha Tin Racecourse on Sunday.
Sha Tin Mile Trophy, a class 1 handicap race being the main event has drawn talented gallopers.
Each would aim at one last moment in the spotlight before settling down to a well-earned summer of rest.
Sometimes like SILVER GRECIAN or WONDERFUL MOMENTS, who didn’t quite go on to greatness.
But other superstars like DAN EXCEL in 2012 and DESIGNS ON ROME two years ago, who did.
