Wind Of Success works up a storm

WIND OF SUCCESS stepped up preparations for a comeback win in the Native Boy Handicap for Class 4 horses over 1,300m on Saturday with a smart workout at Batu Gantong yesterday.

Taken out by a track rider, the six-year-old Australian gelding by Hurricane Sky cantered one round and then sprinted over the final 600m in 36.4sec. The going was yielding.

Wind Of Success, who arrived unraced in September 2010, has six wins, three seconds and five thirds in 35 outings. He went six up in August last year, beating Trojane by a head in a Class 4 event over 1,400m in Kuala Lumpur in yielding going.

Last time out, Wind Of Success ran seventh to Lira in a Class 4 event over 1,600m in yielding going in Penang last month.

Trained by Dr Tan Swee Hock for Cello Stable, Wind Of Success has benefited from his two runs this season and should score his first victory in the new season this weekend.
