COMMENTS AND PROSPECT:

DON WONGCHOY is sired by PENDRAGON, a two-time (3) Group III route winner back in his racing days, whose breeding value is somewhat salvaged by his lineage as a foal out of New Zealand Oaks (NZ-GI) winner ALACRITY. Though serving at stud for only a handful of seasons, both starters in Hong Kong for PENDRAGON have reached the winnerˇ¦s circle.

In distance, as a full-brother to THE PEAK, another five-time (5) winner at 1200 meters in Hong Kong, DON WONGCHOY should likewise be a nice talent at a mile or under.

In course preferences, many a PENDRAGON has been stronger on firm turf.

In general outlook, as yet another new representative for PENDRAGON, whose progeny has been highly successful in Hong Kong, with THE PEAK and GLORIOUS SUNDAY striking in the upper echelons, DON WONGCHOY, himself quite a looker through the barrier trials locally, will be a nice contender in Class 4.
