2020 Sandown Guineas Winner Allibor Sold to Hong Kong

Mon 30th November 2020

2020 Sandown Guineas (1600m) winner Allibor has completed his vet checks and has been sold to Hong Kong.

Trainer Symon Wilde has confirmed the sale, with connections unable to resist the seven-figure offer after the promising galloper’s Group 2 win earlier this month.

“It was a very, very tough decision, but we have had him vetted and it looks like he will make his way to Hong Kong,” Wilde said when speaking to RSN 927.

“The money is sort of almost ridiculous, seven figures. You’ve probably got to be logical about it.

“The racing game is an up and down sport. Logic tells you that you should probably take the money.

“He has vetted out clear and it will be in the next week or so he will be heading to Hong Kong.”

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
