Trainer Ng hopes to add to father's rich legacy

Pierre Ng will chase a notable piece of history when Duke Wai lines up in the HK$20 million G1 Chairman’s Sprint Prize.
The son of former trainer Peter Ng, Pierre is looking to etch his name on the race’s honor roll, which features five wins to his father from two horses, Mystic (1985 & 1986) and Quicken Away (1989-1991), with the latter’s hat-trick a race record.

“Quicken Away was a special horse. He was a sprinter, miler and even over 1800 meters he was quite amazing,” said Ng, adding that he hopes to get more chances to land a winner in the race like his father did.

Veteran galloper Duke Wai will represent Ng in his quest for Chairman’s Sprint Prize glory, fresh from a Dubai campaign where he finished fifth in the G1 Al Quoz Sprint (1200m) over the straight course at Meydan.

“He has recovered very well from that trip. I was very happy with him,” Ng said. “We’re planning for that (Chairman’s Sprint Prize) and it’ll probably be his last run for the season as well.”

Ng was granted a license to train in Hong Kong ahead of this season, while his well-known father led a highly successful stable for over 30 years and won three Horse of the Year titles with Mystic (1984/85) and Quicken Away (1988/89 & 1989/90).

Duke Wai has placed at Group 2 and Group 3 level this season. He has nine wins from 43 starts and HK$18.79 million in earnings.

“He has definitely settled back in Hong Kong well, I have faith in him,” Ng said. “Hopefully he can get prize money again.”

Hong Kong Champion Sprinter (2021/22) Wellington will attempt to match Quicken Away’s three wins in the Chairman’s Sprint Prize, while Lucky Sweynesse, Sight Success, Courier Wonder, Flaming Rib, Aguri, Cordyceps Six and Master Eight also feature.

“Hopefully Duke Wai maintains his form … and brings it on race day,” Ng said.

Duke Wai was a winner one start prior to his Dubai challenge, prevailing in Class 1 over 1200m under handicap conditions on the turf at Sha Tin.
