CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT (Deep Field ex VORMISTA) is Rising Star in Hong Kong


Lightly raced Deep Field three-year-old Californiadeepshot made a winning debut at Hong Kong’s Happy Valley on Wednesday keeping his unblemished race record intact having won his previous two starts in Australia.

Californiadeepshot winning his first career start in HK

Californiadeepshot broke the Kembla Grange Track Record over 1000 metres when stopping the clock in 55.84 seconds to win his first race career  start in August.

He won again at his next start at the same venue in September and went to Hong Kong to continue his career in the stable of trainer Tony Cruz.

Californiadeepshot won three barrier trials in Hong Kong before stepping out for his first race start in a Hong Kong Class Three sprint over 1200 metres.

Winning rider Karis Teetan said, “He’s been trialling good, he’s won both races overseas – I thought it might be tricky with the draw (12) but I had to be very confident, I had to make him understand.”

“He’d been to Happy Valley to trial, so he knew what to expect, but what surprised me was how quickly he got that rail and that’s what won him the race. Once he got it, he switched off underneath me until I needed him to quicken.”

This Colt is bred on Highly Successful STREET CRY x DANZIG Cross =

However, the colt is also the result of an excellent mating strategy by his breeder Emmaroo Bloodstock. Commercially they produced a COLT with the BLUE DIAMOND pulsating through his veins.

However not just a BLUE DIAMOND, its specifically the

What? Why? How?
