Golden Sixty (Aus) | HKJC

Stanley Chan Ka Leung's Golden Sixty (Aus) (Medaglia d'Oro) will not contest the G1 FWD QEII Cup Apr. 26, according trainer Francis Lui Wednesday. The winner of 10 of 11 career starts, the bay won his seven latest trips to post, including the Mar. 22 BMW Hong Kong Derby at Sha Tin.

“He's achieved a lot this season and we feel he needs a rest now to refresh his mind and let him develop,” said Lui. “He'll have a summer break and then we'll prepare him for next season.”

Following a trio of victories at Sha Tin last fall, Golden Sixty kicked off 2020 with a score in the G3 Chinese Club Challenge Cup Jan. 1 before annexing the Hong Kong Classic Mile Jan. 27. Prior to his recent Derby victory, he won the Hong Kong Classic Cup Feb. 23.
