Highly Recommended finishes strongly17 Jul 2020

Highly Recommended made his presence felt in Hong Kong as the season drew to a close with success on the final two days of the 2019-20 term.

The former New Zealand trained gallopers Sumstreetsumwhere and Waldorf posted wins at Sha Tin and Happy Valley respectively.

Sumstreetsumwhere began his career with Stephen Marsh at Cambridge and won two of his first three starts to attract overseas buyer attention.

He was third on debut before breaking his maiden and then showed his quality with success in the G2 James and Annie Sarten Memorial at Te Rapa.

He is now in the David Hall stable and was ridden to his latest victory at Sha Tin by Blake Shinn.

Waldorf posted a black type double in the Ryder Stakes and the Wanganui Guineas from Andrew Campbell’s stable before his sale to Hong Kong interests.

Trainer Tony Cruz has sent Waldorf out for a further six wins, the latest of them under rider Karis Teetan at Happy Valley on the final day of the season.
