Tick of approval for Pins’ son

Approve broke through for his first win in Hong Kong on Monday night when tops at Sha Tin for a leading trainer-jockey combination. The Pins three-year-old was ridden by Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Brett Prebble for John Moore.

An $AUD370,000 Sydney Easter Sale yearling for breeders WS, the gelding had weighed in four times from his previous eight appearances before making his mark in a class four event over 1600 metres. Approve is the only foal out of the Danasinga mare Heavenly, who died prematurely, and is a grand-son of the three-time NZ Broodmare of the Year Flying Floozie.

O’Reilly again made his presence felt on the Sha Tin card with his son K-Mouchi claiming the class five sprint. The four-year-old is out of Zabeels Angel, the winner of nine races including the Gr 3 Winter Cup at Riccarton.
