HIDDEN PROMISE makes it three Singapore wins


Five Year Old Gelding HIDDEN PROMISE (Postponed-Promissory) continued to demonstrate his ability when notching career win number three in the Kranji D Stakes event over 1600 metres at Singapore’s Kranji race course Friday 18th August. Drawn the outside barrier at the tricky 1600 metre starting point on the Kranji Polytrack, Rider R Zawari elected to go back and had HIDDEN PROMISE loping along in relaxed fashion at the back of the field. Moving up into the race from about the 800 metre mark, HIDDEN PROMISE was widest into the straight, but once Zawari hit the accelerator at the 300 metre mark, “Bart” responded with an impressive turn of foot gathering in most of the field at that point and while second place getter, Big Banker was in for the fight, HIDDEN PROMISE went to the line as winner with a 3/4 length margin.

HIDDEN PROMISE – Win No 3 in Singapore

Fortuna Director, John Galvin, expressed great satisfaction at his charge’w win. “This horse really had us scratching our heads late in 2016, not showing us a lot in his trials but apart from his first race where he failed to win prize money, his 10 subsequent starts have seen him win three times and earn prize money in the other seven of those starts. He clearly is a slow maturer and is shaping up as a nice staying type,” he said.

Trained by leading Singapore Trainer, Mark Walker, HIDDEN PROMISE is raced by the Fortuna Hidden Promise Syndicate, an ownership group comprising 29 individuals and was purchased on behalf of Fortuna Syndications by Te Akau Racing supremo, David Ellis, at the 2014 Ready To Run Sale for $65,000 from the draft of Westbury Stud.
