Wonderful start to career
Courier Wonder maintained his perfect record in Hong Kong with a runaway success on the Hong Kong Derby undercard.
The Waikato Stud-bred and sold son of Sacred Falls was a debut winner for trainer John Size in the spring before a spell and, off the back of a trial win, resumed in triumphant fashion in the hands of Joao Moreira.
“I have been saying to connections he is such a special horse and I doubt that he is going to let us down because he is so professional,” Moreira told the Hong Kong Jockey Club.
Courier Wonder was bought out of Waikato Stud’s draft at Karaka for $150,000 by agent John Foote and is a son of the Savabeel mare Fabulist, who was won five times.
All five of her foals to race have been successful and includes the Listed Singapore New Year Cup winner Nowyousee and the Group performers Just Fabulous and Icebath.
Fabulist is from the family of the G2 Wakefield Challenge S. winner Kapsdan and the Listed winner Eccentricity, whose son Wyndham Glory was a dual stakes winner.
