Hong Kong winner Mr Right set in motion a profitable pin-hooking process when he changed hands as a foal at the 2012 Magic Millions National Sale.
Mr Right notched his third win of the season in the Tsuen Wan Hcp (1000m) at Happy Valley on Wednesday. He sat on the pace under Joao Moreira and scored by a half-length from NZ bred sprinters General Iron and No Money No Talk.
The son of Eliza Park International sire Statue Of Liberty had already won over the minimum trip in October and December for trainer Peter Ho.
Mr Right (4g Statue Of Liberty – Prompt by Exceed and Excel) made $50,000 as a foal and he returned to the Magic Millions as a yearling when the Hong Kong Jockey Club quadrupled the asking price to $200,000.
While marking time before going off-shore, his price-tag increased again when younger half-brother Prompt Return (Beneteau) won the G3 Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington.
That helped bump up his value to $HK3.70 million (AUD 611,000) when knocked down for a third time at the Hong Kong International Sale last year.
Statue Of Liberty has five yearlings catalogued for Melbourne Premier including the sister to G3 Proud Miss Stakes winner Miss Steele (Lot 345). Her family received a Group 1 update last month when close relation Dukedom won the Levin Classic in NZ. The final Statue Of Liberty to parade is the filly from Buratti (Lot 724) being offered by EPI as agent. She is bred on the same Exceed And Excel cross as Mr Right.
