The Mark Walker trained Flying Fulton (Flying Spur) won Singapore’s G3 Committee’s Prize last Sunday and he will be gunning for his first Group 1 in the Kranji Mile next weekend.

The Sale’s success on the home front saw Hold it Harvey (King Cugat), Barside (Tobougg) and Loose Change (Faltaat) all win at stakes level.  Hold it Harvey will also be looking to secure a Group 1 victory next weekend in the NZ Bloodstock Insurance Spring Classic.
