Deep Field Sprinter Goes Four from Four

Tara Madgwick - Sunday October 18

At Sha Tin on Sunday exciting Deep Field gelding Winning Dreamer kept his record at a perfect four for four when scoring a stylish win over 1200m.

Trained by Frankie Lor, Wining Dreamer scored a half length win under 60 kg giving 7g to the second place-getter.


I can’t ask for much more. I’m extremely lucky for the owners and trainers to be supporting me so well and as well, I’m so lucky to be on Golden Sixty and horses like Winning Dreamer – extremely lucky the owners have stuck with me,” said winning rider Vincent Ho, who has ridden Winning Dream in each of his victories.

The talented son of Deep Field was sent out a short priced favourite, against another unbeaten galloper, the John Size-trained Scores Of Fun who finished second.

“He can be a sprinter but if he’s behind horses he can switch off completely and when you ask him he can go again – he’s quite fast, he’s a good horse for sure,” Ho said.
