Exciting three-year-old Holy Mongolemperor (NZ) (More Than Ready) has been sold and will do his future racing in Hong Kong.
The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained colt has been placed in three of his seven starts.
The good-looking son of More Than Ready was last seen when fifth in the Gr.2 Auckland Guineas (1600m) won by Dragon Leap, running the fastest closing sectionals.
Well-supported in futures markets for the Gr.1 New Zealand Derby (2400m), Holy Mongolemperor spiked a temperature on the eve of the Gr.1 Levin Classic (1600m), which scuppered his Derby campaign. A $240,000 purchase at the New Zealand Bloodstock Ready To Run Sale, Holy Mongolemperor looks a Hong Kong Derby (2000m) prospect for next season
