Hong Kong Champion has own Watch Collection

Hong Kong's beloved hometown hero, a magnificent racehorse, clinched victory by an impressive four-length lead, adding a substantial sum to his lifetime earnings, now standing at an impressive R386 million. This remarkable achievement resonates deeply within the local community, as it was accomplished by an entirely Hong Kong-based team. The collaborative efforts of owner Stanley Chan Ka Leung, the astute businessman; the seasoned trainer Francis Lui; and the skillful Hong Kong-born jockey Vincent Ho have become a source of immense pride for the community.

To commemorate the excellence of their superstar racehorse, Stanley Chan has gone above and beyond, commissioning a bespoke timepiece. This exquisite chronograph-styled watch boasts intricate details, with the words "Golden Sixty, the pride of Hong Kong" elegantly inscribed around the perimeter of the watch face. As a nod to the ownership, a distinctive disc proudly displays the colors associated with the successful owners. This tangible symbol of achievement not only reflects the prowess of the racehorse but also stands as a testament to the unity and pride of the Hong Kong community that rallied behind their local hero.

Proceeds from the sales of the special edition watch, adorned with the impactful inscription "Golden Sixty, the pride of Hong Kong" along its edge, will be directed toward charitable endeavors. This philanthropic gesture not only celebrates the racing champion but also channels the spirit of community support into meaningful contributions to various charitable causes. The fusion of sporting achievement and altruism underscores the commitment of the Hong Kong community to make a positive impact beyond the racetrack, reflecting a shared sense of responsibility and generosity.
