Snow Fairy wins the 2010 Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Cup.
Date: 12/08/2011

The last big event of the year on the international horse racing calendar is the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Races. The four Group 1 events will be contested over the right-handed 1 3/16 mile turf course at Sha Tin on Sunday afternoon (late Saturday/early Sunday morning in America), all of which are under weight-for-age conditions. North American racing fans can watch the races on HPI-TV in Canada and at selected simulcast locations starting shortly after midnight Eastern time.

The Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Vase (G1) will kick off the day's stakes action at 2:00PM local time (1:00AM ET) The race drew 13 entrants and will be run over the classic distance of 2400 meters (about 1 1/2 miles). Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden and runner-up Red Cadeaux who were separated by just a nose in Australia will renew their rivalry here. The Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sprint (G1) is the next race at a distance of 1200 meters (about 6 furlongs) around one turn, and a field of 14 goes to post at 2:40PM (1:40AM ET). 2009 winner Sacred Kingdom who was 3rd last year is back and faces Rocket Man who was 2nd last year. The Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Mile (G1) drew a full field of 14 and will run at 3:50PM (2:50AM ET), at 1600 meters (about 1 mile) around one turn. Last year's winner Beauty Flash is back and will face a very competitive field including Group 1 winning French runner Sahpresa who was 3rd in the Mile Championship in Japan last out. The highlight race of the day is the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Cup (G1), a 2000-meter (about 1 1/4 mile) trip around two turns, where a field of 10 will go to post at 4:30PM (3:30AM ET). The favorite here will most likely be Cirrus des Aigles who won the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Ascot last out.
