Frankly speaking, from where we were watching, during the presentation ceremony after the running of the Citibank Gold Cup all eyes were only on one person.
No, it wasn’t winning jockey Zac Purton, nor was it trainer John Moore nor the owner of the horse, the “well documented” Stephen Lo who , amongst other things, owns that white elephant in Wanchai called Tonno, a sprawling complex of upmarket karaoke and Chinese restaurants.

On quite a dramatic day of racing where the hotpot for the Cup race- California Memory- pulled up with a heart irregularity and we had to ensure a frivolous objection after the next race, all eyes were on Mrs Stephen Lo. And why not?
Known as Canny Leung, she is extremely attractive, intelligent, fashionable and is a very well known lyricist of some extremely popular Cantonese pop songs.
She also happens to be one of the new breed of racehorse owners- female, knowledgable about the sport, cash-rich and very welcome and attractive addition to any racecourse.
