Star sprinter Classique Legend has arrived safely in Hong Kong as he looks to stamp himself as one of the world’s best sprinters.
The 2020 Everest winner flew out from Melbourne after completing quarantine at Werribee before arriving in Hong Kong on Tuesday.
The five-year-old will be trained by Caspar Fownes in Hong Kong, where he will run in the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint on December 13.
Classique Legend had been trained by New South Wales-based Les Bridge, but owner Bon Ho decided to move his star to Hong Kong so that he could watch the speedster live.
Ho is hopeful of racing Classique Legend in Dubai and Japan and is also mulling a potential trip to Europe with the son of Not A Single Doubt.
A defence of his Everest crown is also on the agenda.
