THE HKIR CURTAIN RAISER ISSUE

By Hans Ebert
@hanseberthk

Sunday at Sha Tin was the big curtain raiser
To Hong Kong International Week in December
And though these are still early days
There was plenty of everything
for everyone to remember

The Gnasher left many shaken and stirred
When he kept Mr Stunning away from the
roadblocks happening to his inside
Lucky bubbles popped and burst all around
As Mr Stunning, Amazing Kids and DB Pins
raced away with the Jockey Club Sprint prize

John Moore took the time to warn everyone
That the best of Werther is yet to come
That this would only be seen next month
When HKIR week comes around

But Werther wasn’t listening to a thing he said
He gave Tommy a Berry good winning ride
And though being knocked from pillar to post
We thought we saw rider and horse both smile

The Magic Man whooped it up for all to see
When the improving Seasons Bloom won the Jockey Club Mile
But what are the odds he’ll soon switch sides
When those iron horses from The Land of The Rising Sun arrive?

Prepare to be globally Thunderstruck
And rocked and rolled deep down inside
That will be on Hong Kong International Jockeys Championship night
And where under those Happy Wednesday lights
Happy Valley Racecourse will come alive…

And after all has been said and done
After that last race has been won and run
There’ll be something here for everyone
We’ll all be here together as one…

So Beat The Clock and get here fast
Make every single moment last
There’ll be no slots, no boasting and booby traps
Just the most entertaining show on turf
And starring a truly international cast…
