COLLECTION Won THE MERCEDES-BENZ HONG KONG DERBY 2009 [03:35]
Race Meeting :22/03/2009 Sha Tin Race 9(487) Hong Kong Group One - 2000 Metres THE MERCEDES-BENZ HONG KONG DERBY 2009 HK$ 16000000.00 Going : Good Course : Turf - "A+3" Course 1st COLLECTION(K217)D Beadman 2nd THUMBS UP(K005) C Soumillon 3rd MR MEDICI(K218) E Saint-Martin Cool, calm Collection cruises to Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby glory 22 March 2009 Collection is unquestionably the latest superstar of Hong Kong racing after a resounding victory in the Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby at Sha Tin on Sunday. Backed into odds of 2/5 favourite, the shortest priced runner in the race for a decade, the British import did not disappoint his legions of admirers with a one and a half length victory from market second pick, Thumbs Up, who in turn was nearly three lengths in front of the third home, Mr Medici. It was the third win in the race for trainer John Moore after Makarpura Star in 1995 and Viva Pataca in 2006. Jockey Darren Beadman, meanwhile, was savouring his first success in the HK$16m classic and earned many post-race plaudits after a brilliant, take-no-prisoners ride. Few Derby winners can ever have done it as tough as Collection but still come home such a dominant champion. As expected, the early exchanges of this ten-furlong event were sedately run. Beadman settled the imposing Peintre Celebre gelding in 12th at least eight lengths from the lead before allowing him to cruise up to second place with half a mile to race.

My Year of the Racehorse by Kevin Chong (non-fiction book trailer) [00:43]
The story of a man, a horse, and a foul-mouthed trainer in the (once) glamorous world of horse racing. Kevin Chong has grand plans. He draws up a to-do list of major milestones that will give him the life he always wanted -- and the life that will inspire awe and envy in his friends. Then Chong makes an unconventional decision: he buys a racehorse. He becomes part-owner. Just don't ask him which part. Thus Chong meets Blackie, the horse that will win his heart, even if she doesn't always win the race. He meets Rosie, the cantankerous trainer with a heart of gold. He meets assorted characters who work, live, and drink at the track. And, one by one, the items on his to-do list are replaced with horse-related ambitions. Written with keen observational humour, My Year of the Racehorse is strewn with fascinating tidbits and infused with the excitement and faded glamour of the horseracing world. Ultimately, it is the moving tale of a young man's discovery that a meaningful life can arise from the most unexpected of circumstances. About the Author Kevin Chong is the author of four books, including Neil Young Nation -- honoured as a book of the year by the Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, and Ottawa Citizen and aired as a documentary on CBC's Definitely Not the Opera -- and the novels Baroque-a-Nova and Beauty Plus Pity. He is an editor at Joyland.ca and teaches creative writing at UBC.
