By Hong Kong Jockey Club (Leo Schlink) | Sunday, April 24, 2022

Referring to the performances of Golden Sixty, Wellington and Romantic Warrior and the overall success of the day, The Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Chief Executive Officer Mr Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges said: “Today was FWD Champions Day and it really was a day of champions, it was the day when records were broken and a day of great excitement because our owners were able to return to the track. Even though we had only just over 1,000 owners and guests, it sometimes felt like 10,000 because of the vibrancy of the day. It has been a wonderful day.

“Today was really the day when champions were at their best and, with the support of our sponsor FWD, I would describe the day as a great success and a restart of the vibrancy of Hong Kong racing with it no longer being staged behind closed doors.

“We have seen world-class performances from Golden Sixty in the FWD Champions Mile, Wellington in the Chairman’s Sprint Prize and the remarkable performance of Romantic Warrior in the FWD QEII Cup.

“I would like to thank the Hong Kong Government for allowing us to keep racing and also for giving us permission to have owners back at the track today. We look forward to being able to welcome back our members and members of the public to join us at the track.”
