So tough and sound are the Hidden Dragon breed that they perform consistently throughout Australia - and beyond, his progeny faring particularly well on the Asian circuit.
And on Sunday January 13 he was represented by a winning double in Singapore, the smart gallopers Fantastic Boy and Danzig Rocket both in the winnner's circle at Kranji.
Both members of the Sonny Keoh stable, the duo won by convincing margins - Fantastic Boy breaking his maiden by a solid 1 1/2 lengths whilst Danzig Rocket was even more impressive saluting by a soft four lengths.
Bred at Lyndhurst Stud by Jeff Kruger, Fantastic Boy was having his seventh start and his on pace victory can be viewed at: http://www.turfclub.com.sg/MediaCenter/VideoGallery/Pages/RaceVideos.aspx?url=http://videos.turfclub.com.sg/2013/20130113SR07.jpg&MeetingDate=2013-01-13T00:00:00Z&Year=2013&RaceNumber=7&title=20130113SR07&RaceType=RaceVideos&index=0#.UPdYqWdg-dw
Sold for $70,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast QTIS 600 Sale, Fantastic Boy is the second foal for well related Gilded Time mare Cenotime.
Served last spring by Sequalo having produced a Drumbeats filly in late September, Cenotime is a half sister to the multiple city winner Kudeta from a prolific black type family that has produced the international star Vengeance Of Rain, the Blue Diamond Stakes winner Danelagh, the AJC Oaks heroine Dizelle and the Group winners Memphis Blues, Palatious, Cable and Bon Amie.
Having his third run back from a spell, Danzig Rocket recorded his fifth career victory and he too showed great natural pace to lead throughout... http://www.turfclub.com.sg/MediaCenter/VideoGallery/Pages/RaceVideos.aspx?url=http://videos.turfclub.com.sg/2013/20130113SR10.jpg&MeetingDate=2013-01-13T00:00:00Z&Year=2013&RaceNumber=10&title=20130113SR10&RaceType=RaceVideos&index=0#.UPdZ_Gdg-dw
Sadly Danzig Rocket's dam Danzig's Strike died young a few years ago having produced just four foals - her final foal being a full brother (now two) to Danzig Rocket. She hailed from the family of stakes winners Dazzling Flyer and French Flute.
