Oratorio's Cue The Music Sold to HK

The KZN Champion two-year-old male of last season Cue The Music has been sold to race in Hong Kong and will not run in South Africa again.

The Dennis Bosch-trained Avontuur Thoroughbred Farm-bred Oratorio gelding won his first three starts including the Grade 3 Godolphin Barb Stakes over 1100m at Scottsville and he then only just failed to hold on when runner up in the Grade 1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion over 1200m at Scottsville.

He then disappointed over further when fifth in the Grade 2 Golden Horseshoe over 1400m.

His last run was in the Grade 3 Umkhomazi Stakes over 1200m on the Greyville turf and he once again disappointed but was clearly not himself and is better than that.

He is a half-brother to the brilliant Champion Sprinter Val De Ra and is as laid back as she was so should take the arduous journey well and is sure to make his presence felt on the racing mad island.
