Email

Chenchikova came a cropper on the heavy ground at The Curragh on Sunday. The 11-10 favorite, Chenchikova came home fourth behind the 10-1 winner, Danehill Music, in the Group 3 Park Express Stakes.

A full sister to two-time Breeders' Cup Turf winner High Chaparral, Chenchikova finished 3 3/4 lengths behind the David Wachman-trained winner.

A handicap winner on similar ground at The Curragh last year, Danehill Music prevailed by two lengths over Utterly Heaven, slogging through the mile in 2:05.61.

* Billet Express produced a 24-1 upset in the Group 1, $580,000 Chairman's Sprint Prize at Sha Tin on Sunday, catching recent Centenary Sprint Cup winner Scintillation near the line to win the six-furlong dash by a head. Silent Witness finished third, another 1 3/4 lengths behind. Billet Express, trained by John Moore and ridden by Christophe Soumillon, was timed in 1:09.70 on yielding turf.

Moore and Soumillon completed a Group 1 double when Viva Pataca landed the $1.8 million Hong Kong Derby.
