SINGAPORE - Well Done outlasted his 15 rivals to capture the Emirates Singapore Derby on Sunday (July 10) with a come-from-behind victory.
The New Zealand-bred chestnut gelding, ridden by Australia jockey Michael Rood, finished three-quarter lengths clear of Majestic Moments (Nooresh Juglall) with Rockfast (Manoel Nunes) another one-and-a-half lengths back in third.
The winning time was 2min 3sec on the short course at the Singapore Turf Club.
Winning trainer David Kok called the victory in the $1.15 million Group 1 race over 2,000m his biggest in his career.
The Singaporean handler said: "He's the best horse I've ever trained and this is a special day for me. I'm just so emotional right now."
The Derby is Singapore's oldest horse race and the second richest race after the $1.35 million Longines Singapore Gold Cup in November.
