California Memory swept to victory for the second year in a row in the 2000-meter Hong Kong Cup yesterday in the most prestigious event at the Longines Hong Kong International Races.
The home-team horse was ridden by Matthew Chadwick, who also steered him to a win last year.Describing how it felt to win two Cups in a row, the Hong Kong jockey said: “It’s unbelievable, the best feeling in the world. Lane one was a great draw. He jumped out of the gate then it was a question of being patient. He put it to bed in three or four strides.”
