Tony Cruz, Pakistan Star’s trainer has been pretty happy about his horse’s performance. He said,
That first day I got him, oh man, he really didn’t want to work, but he has changed so quickly – he has really changed in his character. Before, he was shy about everything; now, he is brave. He has got guts, this guy, and he clearly has ability.
The final 400 meters were simply brilliant, it was an amazing spectacle to behold. Mathew Chadwick, the jockey, made sure that he kept the record keepers in the game, having run the last 400 meters in 21.44s; the second best for any horse in Hong Kong. Pakistan Star has laid serious claims to be one of the best late-runners in the horse racing with this Chautauqua-like performance.
The trainer, Tony Cruz spoke highly of his jockey, Mathew Chadwick, saying,
Matthew was so confident about this horse. He just left him alone and around the bend I could see he was really changing his gears; he was really coming with a bigger explosion than last time – he has that powerful turn of foot. Once he straightened to the outside I knew he was going to win and Matthew took it easy, too, he didn’t hammer him.
