Sunday, February 10th, 60 of the world’s top-rated horses flew into town for this weekend’s Longines Masters of Hong Kong. Befitting their pedigrees – and their stature in the sport – the horses flew in ultimate comfort and safety onboard an Etihad Cargo Boeing 777 Freighter, arriving at the Hong Kong International Airport under the watchful gaze of the world’s leading horse transport company, Peden Bloodstock.

Among the stars of the sport now being prepared for three days of Longines Masters of Hong Kong competition at AsiaWorld-Expo are Paris’s Longines Speed Challenge winner here - Kevin Staut's Ayade de Septon*HDC – as well as Emanuele Gaudiano’s Chalou. Joining them is Roger Yves Bost's gelding Vino D'Espinet and rôme Guery’s ride Garfield.
