KUALA LUMPUR:  Jan 1, 2023

Clyde Leck, who won both the senior and apprentice titles last year with 72 winners, has started the new season on a brilliant note.

Clyde combined with his father Charles to win three races on the opening day of the 2023 season at Sungei Besi here today.

The pair struck first with the aptly-named WINNER’S EUPHORIA who made it three wins in his last four starts.

The Redoute’s Choice had a win in Australia but was very disappointing in six starts in Singapore before moving on to Malaysia.

The Lecks must have been disappointed that GAMESTONKS just failed to continue his winning run in the combined Classes 2 & 3 race but they bounced back immediately in the next event to score on CHONKY POTATO in the Class 4 – 1175m handicap.

It was the second win in 10 starts for the Dalghar entire who had a win in New Zealand before coming to Malaysia.

The father and son wound up the first day of racing winning on SILENT PRINCE who notched his fifth win Malaysia, following two in Singapore. The Irish gelding also had a win in England before coming out here.

Last year’s leading trainer Cheng Han Yong also had a winning start to 2023, saddling DRAGON
