Viva Pataca prevails in THE CITI HONG KONG GOLD CUP 2009 [02:11]
Race Meeting: 22/02/2009 Sha Tin RACE 7(412) Hong Kong Group One - 2000 Metres THE CITI HONG KONG GOLD CUP HK$ 8000000.00 Going : Good Course : Turf - "A+3" Course 1 VIVA PATACA(G096) D Beadman 2 PACKING WINNER(E334) D Whyte 3 EYSHAL(J099) WC Marwing Moore bags a Gr.1 double of contrasts with Viva Pataca, Dim Sum 22 February 2009 John Moore has enjoyed many major victories during his record-breaking career in Hong Kong, but no doubt Sunday's Gr.1 double will always rank highly.

The evergreen Viva Pataca today became the highest money earner in the history of Hong Kong racing when he scored a stunning win in the Audemars Piguet QEII Cup at Sha Tin today. The win was an 18th career victory for the John Moore trained eight-year-old; his 13th win in Hong Kong; his 8th Group 1; his second in this race and took his total prize-money earnings to HK$80232500 eclipsing the HK$75410500 mark set by the 2005 APQEII cup winner Vengeance Of Rain. Earlier Moore had also won the Champions Mile with Able One and the performances of Hong Kong's stars was a further bonus on a day which saw turnover climb to HK$1.085 billion - a significant rise on HK$912 million in 2009. It was the 10th time turnover had topped $1 billion this season and today's turnover generated HK$124 million in betting duty paid to the Government, with the remaining HK$47 million retained by the Club as operating expenses. "We saw a wonderful day's racing with excellent turnover and again the performances of Viva Pataca and Able One demonstrated that we have racing of a world class standard here in Hong Kong," said HKJC Chief Executive Officer Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges. "I want to congratulate all involved with Viva Pataca on his record and I was also pleased to see Lizard's Desire run so well coming off his Dubai World Cup second on a different surface.
