Texas Glitter, a 6-year-old horse who posted the richest victory of his career in the $200,000 Hollywood Turf Express Handicap (gr. III) Friday, will be flown to Hong Kong Tuesday to conclude his career in the Hong Kong Sprint Dec. 15.
Michael McCarthy, assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher, said the Florida-bred son of Glitterman would be retired to stud after the race. The flight to Hong Kong is also expected to include Delta Form, third-place finisher in the Hollywood Turf Cup (gr. IT) for Jenine Sahadi, and Nuclear Debate from the Darrell Vienna barn.
McCarthy also said that 2-year-olds Lismore Knight, runner-up in the Generous Stakes (gr. IIIT) Saturday, and Ocean Drive, fourth-place finisher in the Miesque Stakes (gr. IIT) for fillies Friday, will be flown to New Orleans Monday morning and vanned to Pletcher's stable in Florida.
