Double strike in Hong Kong


Savabeel’s son Regency Master has furthered his record in Hong Kong and fellow Waikato Stud graduate Happy Daily followed his lead to post a winning double for the Matamata nursery at Sha Tin.

Trained by Danny Shum, Regency Master returned to his best last night in the hands of Matthew Poon when he accounted for his Class 5 rivals over 2000 metres.

The victory was not unexpected as he has had put the writing on the wall at his previous outing when third over a mile and he relished the step up in distance.

Regency Master is a son of the late High Chaparral mare Lady Chaparral, who was a talented race mare and won four races including the G3 Tauranga S. She was a half-sister to the G1 New Zealand Oaks winner Bramble Rose.

A $500,000 Karaka purchase for agent Stuart Hale, Regency Master was offered at New Zealand Bloodstock’s Ready to Run Sale by Ohukia Lodge on behalf of breeder Waikato Stud.

He is a half-brother to Hong Kong winner Sparky Star and a brother to Australian Group performer High Supremacy.

Regency Master has now won three races, as has the Peter Ho-prepared Happy Daily following his success against the Class 3 sprinters over 1400 metres.

He is son of the late Pins and the Savabeel mare Genius, a multiple winner whose son Andalus was a $420,000 New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale buy for agent Bruce Perry and has been a two-time Group placegetter.

Waikato Stud also sold an Ocean Park filly out of Genius, who is due to foal to Tivaci, to Champion Thoroughbreds for A$210,000 at this year’s Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.
