Supporters of Stock Legend in the sixth race from Happy Valley on October 7 could be forgiven for giving up on the gelding after he made a meal of the start, then veered left and was seemingly in no man's land with what loomed as a likely battle just to tack onto the Class 4 field.

Contesting the 1200m on Wednesday night at start number 11, the Francis Lui-trained four-year-old jumped as a $6.50 chance following a fair return for sixth at Sha Tin on September 20 and prior to this run, his best effort was a third-placing back in June.

Under jockey Vincent Ho, Stock Legend was able to pass a runner around 250 metres into the event after missing the kick by roughly half a dozen lengths and despite eventually getting into a rhythm, was still close to the rear rounding the turn for home.

He was able to spark into action approaching the last furlong where although racing a little ungenerous, was making rapid ground and with Hin Yuen Bis in his sights late, hit the lead over the concluding stages to score an impossible win.
Stock Legend is a half-brother to multiple group winner Judged and was purchased for Hong Kong following a Hawkesbury trial win for Bjorn Baker back in February 2019 when racing as 'Captain Australia'.
