Super Kid moved off the mark at stud when Lindsay Park gelding Super Hunter was a decisive winner of the D & M Stockfeeds Plate (1980m) at Tatura.
It was fitting victory. Like his sire, Super Hunter is trained by David Hayes for owner Wong Kwan.
Super Hunter (3c Super Kid – Incarnation by Danzero) had been run down when placed at his previous three starts but led from go to whoa on Sunday. He started an odds-on favourite to defeat Beckazar (Beckett) by over a length.
His dam Incarnation was a two-time Randwick winner for John O’Shea and she is a sister to Melbourne stakes performer Paris Zero.
Super Kid (Gaius) retired to Cornerstone Stud after proving himself at the highest level in both Australia and Hong Kong from 1400m to 2400m. He’s only one of two horses to complete the Hong Kong Triple Crown of the Stewards Cup (1600m), Gold Cup (2000m) and Champions & Chater Cup (2400m).
Super Kid travelled to Australia in 2005 and was runner-up to Barely a Moment in the G1 Dubai Racing Club Cup and G1 Toorak Hcp at Caulfield.
Initially, Super Kid was primarily used by Wong Kwan for his own mares, however, he now stands on a commercial basis at Cornerstone for a $2,200 (inc gst) service fee.
