Kip Deville canters in Hong Kong


Kip Deville, America's big hope in the Hong Kong Mile at Sha Tin on Dec. 14, had his first exercise at Sha Tin on Thursday, cantering around the all-weather course.

Meanwhile, three other American-trained horses have been confirmed for Hong Kong International Race Day, Awesome Gem in the Mile and Artiste Royal and Out of Control in the 1 1/4-mile Hong Kong Cup. All three are scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong from Los Angeles International Airport at 11:15 p.m. local time next Friday.
