Joao Moreira was in treble form at Sha Tin on Sunday and he was buzzing after Sky Field put four lengths on the field in the Class 4 Mr Award Handicap (1200m).
The Caspar Fownes-trained three-year-old broke his maiden at the third attempt in a manner that points to a bright future.
“It’s been a while since I’ve ridden a nice young talent like him. The best part of it is that he feels like a raw type, that has plenty of improvement still,” Moreira said.
“There are no words to describe what a great feeling you get when you ride such a nice horse.”
Sky Field was purchased out of Trelawney Stud's 2018 Book 1 draft for $175,000.
He hails from the family of Hong Kong Group One winner The Duke and New Zealand Group One performer Chambord.
