Forza’s hot run continues
05 Dec 2013

Forza continued his excellent run of form in Hong Kong last night with further success over 1200 metres at Sha Tin. Ridden by leading jockey Zac Purton, the lightly-tried five-year-old got home narrowly but well in a driving finish.

A son of Elusive City, the gelding has come back in grand order this preparation and was a first-up winner at Happy Valley in September off a two month break. He then posted two minor placings before striking on Sunday for his third career victory.

Forza was purchased for $15,000 from Goodwood Stud’s National Weanling Sale draft to Karaka in 2009. Out of a Howbaddouwantit mare, he is from the family of the Gr 1 Adelaide Cup winner The Hind.
