Sha Tin Racecourse

The Alfonso (J Lau)

The Alfonso had 4 wins from 17 races in Australia before coming to Macau. His second run in Macau was in the 2015 Macau Derby and won impressively by 5 lengths over the second place getter. After a spell, he ran on strongly to win the 1000 meters Macau Sprint Trophy which was a bit short for him in November last year. He ran wide down the back straight until the home straight when placed second by a neck to winner Dashing Fellow in the Hong Kong Macau Trophy at Sha Tin in March this year, he also placed second to winner Best of Luck in Macau Hong Kong Trophy. Was disappointing in a 1500 meters race in October, but trialed impressively when easily winning a barrier trial on 29 October. The Alfonso has 4 wins in Macau so far, he has good form on a soft track, however it is believed that a firm track will suit him even better. He is usually placed in a mid to rear position.
