Undefeated two year old Gunnison has been scratched from the Group 1 $1m Inglis Sires’ (1400m) at Randwick on day one of ‘The Championships’ on Saturday and will do his future racing in Hong Kong.

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Gunnison was sold for A$1.4-million at Inglis’s inaugural Chairman’s Sale – Elite Racing Prospects on Thursday night.

Inglis’s National Bloodstock Director Jonathan D’Arcy said that the new owners will race Guunison in Hong Kong and would be scratched from the Inglis Sires’.

“Gunnison, I think it’s very rare for a horse like that ever to be offered at a sale like this,” D’Arcy told Thoroughbred Daily News.

“He’s at the peak of his powers, undefeated, he isn’t going to run in the Sires’ given the owner is based in Hong Kong and wants to take him up there, but we’ll follow his progress with great interest and I’m sure he’s going to be a great advertisement for this type of sale in the future.”

Agent Rob McNulty purchased Gunnison for his son Chris who said the Not A Single Doubt gelding would be well suited to the sprint races in Hong Kong.

“We targeted this horse for a specific reason and that is that sprinting events in Hong Kong at the moment are very open with not huge fields, so we see this as a great opportunity to get a high-quality sprinter from Australia over there,” Chris McAnulty told D’Arcy by phone,

“Gunnison is a lovely gelding, he’s proved in his short career already that he is loaded with ability and we’re looking forward to getting our hands on him and seeing what he can do in Hong Kong.’’

Gunnison was well in contention in the betting for the Inglis Sires’ and the prospect of another heavy track would not have been a problem after he beat his stablemate Invader by a nose on a heavy 9 track in the Group 2 $300,000 UNSW Todman Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on March 4.

At his only other start Gunnison had scored on debut in the $30,000 Inglis Bonus 2yo Plate (1000m) at Canberra on February 19.

Todman Stakes runner up Invader is now the only runner in the Inglis Sires’ for Team Snowden and is listed as a $10 chance with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Golden Slipper second and third placegetters Frolic at $4.50 and Tulip at $5 sit at the top of the market order ahead of fourth placed Menari at $8.50.

The scratching of Gunnison now lets first emergency and $101 chance Feng Chu take his place in the Inglis Sires’ field.
