Golden Sixty came home fast and late to claim Playa Del Puente in an exciting conclusion to the BMW Hong Kong Derby 2020 from Sha Tin.
A field of fourteen lined-up for this valuable ten-furlong conditions race on the turf.
There was a fairly even break and World Famous and Reliable Team were among the early leaders.
Passing the post and heading out with a complete circuit to run, Champion’s Way led Star Performance and Reliable Team.
Heading to the home turn, Playa Del Puente stormed clear of Champion’s Way and World Famous.
But Playa Del Puente held a four-length lead, with Golden Sixty charging down the outside, the only horse to emerge.
In a pulsating finish, Golden Sixty powered home under Vincent Ho and dramatically got up, in the shadow of the post.
More Than This came home third, ahead of Champion’s Way, who won a blanket finish for fourth.
