First Win for Fantasticlife

Hong Kong, May 3

Breaking the ice at Sha Tin on Sunday was three year-old Encosta de Lago gelding Fantasticlife, a half-brother to Group I HK International Sprint winner Absolute Champion and dual South African Group I winner Wylie Hall.

It was the first win in 10 starts for Fantasticlife, who took the 1400 metre event by a head with Joao Moreira in the saddle.

Fantasticlife was a $120,000 Magic Millions purchase for Apollo Ng from the Newhaven Park draft and is the eighth winner from eight foals to race from terrific producer Beauty Belle.

Beauty Belle is due to foal to Wylie Hall’s sire Redoute’s Choice this spring.

Making it a double for Newhaven Park breds at Sha Tin was four year-old Charge Forward gelding Charity Kingdom, who scored by a short head over 1600 metres as favourite ending a frustrating run of three seconds in a row.

With three wins from 15 starts, Charity Kingdom was sold as a weanling by Newhaven Park fetching $40,000 from the Magic Millions National Sale.

He is one of two winners from Jig Time Lady, a full sister to Splish, the grand-dam of this season’s Group II winning two year-old English.

Jig Time Lady has a weanling colt by Smart Missile and was covered late last year by Delago Deluxe.
