Son of Oratorio blitzes rivals again in HK

Military Attack, the 5 year old son of Oratorio, once again showed his form by coming in first in the HKG3 Premier Plate over 1800 m in Hong Kong on Saturday.

The John Moore trained star, in the capable hands of jockey Zac Purton broke well and kept up the pace against a strong field of 13, winning in a time of 1 min 49.98s.  After his recent Gold Cup performance he now seems set for the G1 Audemars Piquet QEII on 28 April.

Oratorio is in the meantime settling in well at Avontuur Estate and is being prepared for his launch event at the farm in mid-May.
