Hong Kong – He is the highest-rated horse in his stable and trainer David Ferraris is excited about what lies ahead for boom South African import Lobo’s Legend.

With victory in the Grade 1 SA Classic (1800m) on his resume, Lobo’s Legend was handed a rating of 90 on his arrival in Hong Kong to immediately become Ferraris’ best galloper. Now the trainer is eager to watch the four-year-old colt develop.

He had his first run in Hong Kong on Derby Day and finished 12th of 14 after being taken back from a wide gate, but Ferraris is expecting marked improvement in Sunday’s Class 2 Tolo Harbour Handicap (1400m) after drawing barrier one.

“He’s definitely come on from that run. I’ll place him in a better position this time and he’ll run very well,” Ferraris said. “I’m very excited, he’s a lovely horse and I think he’ll do very well here. He’s done everything right and I’m very happy with him.”
