Welcome to Great Racehorses of the World

Hong Kong Champions Mile 2009

Sight Winner was the surprise but worthy winner of the 2009 Hong Kong Champions Mile in April 2009 at odds of 64-1.

Sight Winner was the longest priced of John Size''s four runners.

The five year gelding by Faltaat edged out Egyptian Ra after a battle up the straight on a soggy Sha Tin sunday.

Riding Sight Winner for the first time, Brett Prebble produced a late burst and won by a short-head at odds of 64/1 from frontrunning Egyptian Ra, trained by Tony Cruz and ridden by Felix Coetzee.

The fast-finishing Australian runner Dao Dao finished just a head behind in third and the race hot favourites Good Ba Ba and Collection ran fourth and fifth respectively.
