5 Dec 2013: Sky Lantern All Clear for Hong Kong Mile
Following a few initial concerns following arrival in Hong Kong on Saturday, leading European Female Miler Sky Lantern appeared on course at Sha Tin on Wednesday for the first time, putting to rest any concerns regarding her wellbeing.
While taking the lengthy flight from the United States with ease, Sky Lantern is understood to have been ‘a bit quiet’ since arriving at her temporary home in Sha Tin’s international quarters, the course at which she will bid to cap off a truly memorable career of Group 1 victories this Sunday for trainer Richard Hannon before he officially signs his license over to his son Richard Jnr on January 1st.
It was revealed that Sky Lantern, who had been confined to particularly light work in the trotting ring, had only been scheduled to take to the course for the first time on Wednesday however, largely clearing up any previous speculation.
Along with several other international contenders for Hong Kong’s major events this weekend, Hannon’s hopeful completed a good piece of work on the all-weather track, with Hannon Jnr and owner; Chairman of locally-based Jardine Matheson Ben Keswick on hand to view the leg stretch and canter.
“She was a bit quiet when she arrived at the weekend, but she’s okay now and is eating and drinking plenty” Hannon Jnr said.
“She’s done all her main work at home and we’ll do as little as possible with her from now until Sunday.”
With a view of her Hong Kong-based ownership, Hannon further revealed that an attempt on the Hong Kong Mile had always been the ‘the plan’ following her victories in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, 1,000 Guineas and Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes.
“We got her ready for British Champions day, but the ground at Ascot went against, so we gave her a break and she looks fine now” Hannon said.
