Hong Kong's latest racetrack sprint sensation, the Aussie bred and sold Entrapment, made a triumphant return to the track on Saturday evening with a high class win in the Group Three Sha Tin Sprint Trophy (1000m).

In extending his perfect record to eight, Entrapment downed two of the region's star gallopers Sacred Kingdom and Dim Sum.

The crowd cheered and connections celebrated when Entrapment went to the line with a soft half length win over Sacred Kingdom.

Entrapment, a bargain buy for $16,000 at the 2007 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale, is the sole runner to date for his dam Miabondialee.

A daughter of Vettori, Miabondialee won two races at 1200 and 1550 metres - one of them at Moonee Valley.

Miabondialee in turn is from an unraced Palace Music half sister to Group One Karrakatta Plate winner Umah as well as the dam of Asian star Captain Obvious - a Malaysian star who recently won the Group Three Jumbo Jet Trophy in Singapore.

It is also the family of proven Group One winners including Visit and Response and fellow group winner Suzy Grey, Returntosender, Anyone Home, Northern Reward, Kenny's World and All Square.

With Entrapments talents on show in Hong Kong it was with great pleasure that on the 25th of July this year Miabondialee gave birth to a lovely bay filly at Denis Roberts' Trevannah Farm in the Upper Hunter Valley, the first foal for Red Arrow.

Red Arrow having spent his first season in the Hunter Valley in 2010 has since been relocated to Blue Gum Farm for the 2011 season and this Group 3 Winning Son of Red Ransom (USA) from the dual Group 1 Winning mare Lady Jakeo is being given every chance to succeed. With strong support from shareholders and breeders a like the stunning looking son of Red Ransom is on the path to success.

Red Arrow stands at a fee of $6600 in 2011.
