Dao Dao "Thriving" Before HK Gr1 Champions Mile
Meanwhile the official HK Jockey Club bulletin from yesterday morning's trackwork at Sha Tin reported Australian-bred 6YO gelding Dao Dao (Shinko Forest-Casual Way, by Casual Lies) prepared for Sunday's Gr1 Champions Mile (1600m) "with steady work on the all-weather & continues to hold his condition in the now familiar HK environment". Trainer Michael Hawkes commented: "He does thrive here & that's so important. He weighed 573.5kg before he left Sydney for Melbourne by road & then the flight to HK. He's now 583kg which tells us he's done well."
