Thoroughbred Racehorse Champions
From the mid-1990s to 2009 Morningside was mainly used for the education, development and adaptation of yearlings to racehorses as well as agistment and rehabilitation. Quarantine for the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club was provided for ten years.
With the design and building of our own extended trot conditioner and the open spaces for long riding and hill speed work as well as the lush pastures plus applied expertise of management and staff, no less than 35 “Group 1” winners were graduated from the various programs on Morningside. This is in addition to numerous “Group 2” and “Group 3” winners and numerous “Group 1” placed horses.
Included in the “Group 1” winners were two horses which were weighted the highest in the world at 1200m (“Silent Witness”) and 2000m (“Vengeance of Rain”). Both started their careers at Morningside.
Two Melbourne Cup winners, “Efficient” and “Shocking”, were also graduates. Two top stallions, “Keeper” and “Reset” were also from the program.
