Scores of Fun - image HKJCAfter impressing at the trials for John Size and Joao Moreira, Scores Of Fun was well-backed into favouritism. He becomes Reward For Effort's eight career winner in Hong Kong, headed by HK$5 Million earner Jumbo Luck. 

Scores Of Fun was bred at Hollylodge Thoroughbreds by Jeremy McGrath and Darren Fradd who sold him as a weanling for $15,000 to Belmont Bloodstock. A successful pinhook result saw him sell for $100,000 via Springmount to Price Bloodstock at Inglis Premier.

Scores Of Fun is out of Brahms mare Montana Hilton who has been booked back into Reward for Effort again this season. 

Another son of Reward for Effort, Bullish Brother also won in Hong Kong on Wednesday for breeder Tarcoola Stud out of their Royal Academy mare Stream Royale.

Reward For Effort once again provides the much needed reliability breeders are seeking. He has sired 78 individual winners this season including Lucifer's Reward who broke the 1000m track record at Pakenham on Thursday night. He is bred and owned by Andy O'Shea's Innisfree Thoroughbreds.

Reward For Effort stands at his original fee of $11,000 inc. GST in 2020.
