Golden Sixty won the Hong Kong Mile for the third time. Local newspapers highlighted him as the “Pride of HK,” and jockey Ho praised the horse, saying, “He’s like a monster. When I asked for the effort, he showed an unbelievable turn of foot” Golden Sixty, sired by Medaglia d’Oro, was purchased for A$120,000 at the 2017 Magic Million Sale. With this victory, his total prize money increased to HKD 165,856,000 (approx A$32 million), making him the world’s top-earning horse.
