Alert the Press
Sire of Alert the Press Akeed Mofeed won the BMW Hong Kong Derby 2013.
Akeed Mofeed is a thoroughbred racehorse trained in Ireland by John Oxx and arrived in Hong Kong in 2012. In Hong Kong he was trained by Richard Gibson. A winner over seven furlongs at two, he also finished second in the Beresford Stakes (G2, 1m) when trained by John Oxx in Ireland, where he also he won the Platinum Stakes (Listed, 1m) and finished fourth in the Irish Derby (G1, 1m4f), which was won by Camelot (Montjeu), at three, before he was sold to Hong Kong.
Arriving in Hong Kong in 2012, with great expectations from the media, Akeed Mofeed opened his account by winning a 1800m Class 2 race in early March 2013 and subsequently sealed his status as the best local 4-year-old of the year by capturing victory in the BMW Hong Kong Derby 2013 (HK G1, 2000m). Akeed Mofeed is also the 1st runner-up of the Longines Jockey Club Cup (G2, 2000m), losing only by a diminishing head to Endowing, the champion. On 8 December 2013, Akeed Mofeed was crowned champion of the Longines Hong Kong Cup (G1, 2000m), downing a field containing Japanese star Tokei Halo (Gold Halo), Cirrus Des Aigles (Even Top), Military Attack (Oratorio (IRE)) and Mackinnon Stakes (G1, 2000m) winner Side Glance (Passing Glance).
The son of Dubawi (Dubai Millennium) had eleven starts in Hong Kong, of which he won four, with his last start coming in the Dubai World Cup (G1, 2000m) at Meydan in 2014 where he finished fifth behind African Story (Pivotal).

As a 4-year-old, Alert the Press beat Sunrise Dancer over 1010m. Sunrise Dancer has gone on to win 3 races, had 3 seconds and has 3 thirds. Alert the Press notably performs better on a good track condition rather than a wet track, therefore Singapore will suit him very well.
Alert the Press arrives in Singapore on 9th September. Any interested parties are welcome to view this horse at Steven Burridge Racing Stables. Visit www.stevenburridgeracing.com
