Stakes Success for Wealthy Man

Six-year-old New Zealander Wealthy Man (NZ) (Danzighill x Tatts M' Name) claimed his first stakes success in Macau on Saturday, beating top racehorse Luen Yat Forever (Honours List) to win the M$700,000 M-2 Macau Directors' Cup (1500m).

French apprentice jockey Charles Perkins gave Wealthy Man the perfect ride in the feature race of the meeting, jumping on the speed before settling in the box seat just off the leaders and powering away in the straight. The race winning time of 1 minute 25.5 seconds was a new track record, over half a second quicker than the old record of 1 minute 26.1 seconds.

Trained by Stephen Chow, the win was Wealthy Man's eighth from 28 career starts. The six-year-old has been close to stakes success in the past having run second in the Listed Macau Sprint Trophy (1200m) in 2010 and third in the Listed Macau Hong Kong Trophy (1500m) in 2011.

Bred by Abingdon Thoroughbreds, Wealthy Man was purchased by Glenn Old from White Robe Lodge at New Zealand Bloodstock's South Island Sale of Two-Year-Olds & Mixed Bloodstock for $12,000. He has now won over NZ$400,000 for his owners Lau Fu Wing & Tse Kam Po.
