Big Party will attempt to seal a hat-trick and maintain his status as one of Hong Kong’s brightest prospects when he returns to action at Sha Tin on Sunday, 14 April.
Frankie Lor’s exciting grey has not raced since a “cruise-control” demolition of Class 3 rivals over 1200m on 1 January. But a niggle in the three-year-old’s near-fore led to his withdrawal from an intended run in early February.
“Unfortunately, after the last time he raced he had a little problem with his left front leg but nothing too bad,” Lor said this morning (Friday, 12 April). “I gave him nearly two months to get over it and his trial last time he was a little bit slow. The jockey said he sat down in the gate.”
