Bilyonaryo Danding Cojuangco’s three-year-old steed FTW

 

San Miguel Corporation chairman Danding Cojuangco’s three-year-old colt Prized Icon scored a come-from-behind win at the Group 1 level Victoria Derby in Melbourne recently.

On his instagram post, veteran sportscaster Joaquin Henson recounted how the victory of Cojuangco’s horse brought honor for Asia and particularly the Philippines.

“Prized Icon trailed 7 horses in the early going but started to surge with 400 meters left in the 2,500-meter race then pulled away with 100 meters to go and won by 2 ½ length over a starting pack of 16,” Henson said.

As the only Asian to be inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of fame and in Brisbane rites last year, Bilyonaryo Cojuangco totally proves that winners just keep on winning. #
