Smart people can win four on the trot

SMART PEOPLE, unbeaten in his last three outings, geared up for a strong claim in Saturday's Malaysia Three-Year-Old Championship 2014 Final over 1,400m with a dazzling workout at Sungei Besi yesterday.

Taken out by jockey Lou Ho, the three-year-old Australian gelding by Duke Of Marmalade cantered one round and than easily beat stablemate Silver Dollar in a 600m trial to clock 36.5sec. The going was good.

Smart People, who arrived unraced in February last year, has three wins in six outings. He made it a hat-trick, beating Ace Surprise in the Malaysia Three-Year-Old Championship 2014 over 1,200m in Kuala Lumpur in May to qualify for a berth in the final on Saturday.

Trained by Frank Maynard, Smart People has made further headway and should strike again on Saturday.
