Welcome back, Spalato

secepat mungkin Puan,,,

The big races are around the corner with the Kranji Mile, EW Barker Trophy and Singapore Gold Cup all looming and, while we can expect recent winners Johnny Guitar and Magneto, as well as War Affair and Laurie's top 4YOs Daniel and Goodman, to play their parts, the unbeaten SPALATO is taking a quieter return, skipping the Kranji Mile and taking on a Kranji Stakes A first-up on what connections hope will be a path to feature races in Hong Kong later in the season.

GOODBYE, DOUG

On a sombre note, the racing world was saddened with the recent passing of former trainer Douglas Dragon, who will always be remembered not just as a good trainer but as the man who brought Joao Moreira to Singapore, something which all serious racegoers will be forever grateful.

Our commiserations go to daughter Leticia.
