HK beckons Sacred Elixir

Jun 8, 2017

Group I winner Sacred Elixir has entered quarantine for Hong Kong.

“He’s going with a view to running in the Derby there and that was always the plan,” Cambridge trainer Tony Pike said.

“Depending how he goes, he’ll stay or he could come back here.”

Sacred Elixir was successful in the Group I J.J. Atkins at Eagle Farm 12 months ago for Pike and the following spring he won the Group III Vase at Moonee Valley before he finished runner-up in the Group I VRC Derby.

On his return home, the son of Pour Moi had a further three starts culminating in his fifth placing in the Group I New Zealand Derby. NZ Racing Desk.
