Designs On Rome, Able Friend give Moore one-two finish in Hong Kong Derby

It was billed as a clash of two John Moore-trained titans and Sunday's Group 1 Hong Kong Derby did not disappoint. Designs On Rome and Able Friend delivered the epic duel everyone had hoped for at Sha Tin racecourse, with the former emerging victorious.

Fabulous field, but...these are the INVITEES, right? How many do you think will actually run?
TVG has picked a good time to add Hong Kong racing, although it will being going off really late, even for this California resident. Our East Coast fans may be wondering whether to stay up...or get up early to watch. ;)

Epiphaneia and Uncoiled have already booked flights. :D
They will leave from Japan on April 18.
I'm not yet sure about the others.

That's good. I would presume that the Hong Kong horses will all run, if they are ready and healthy. That leaves the South African horses and Cirrus,' who were all in Dubai for the Racing Festival. It's not too long a hop over to Hong Kong from there?

Mike de Kock's duo Vercingetorix(SAF) and Sanshaawes(SAF) have been confirmed for the Audemars Piguet QEII Cup.

Cirrus des Aigles(FR) has been withdrawn. He will instead be headed to the Prix Ganay at Longchamp for a clash with champion Treve(FR).
