NZ's 2nd entrant in the Gr1 Singapore Airlines International Cup (2000m) Spin Around (Spinning World-Be Yourself, by Noalcoholic) has also arrived safely at Kranji & Singapore Turf Club veterinary surgeon Dan Shaw reported: "According to the International Racehorse Transport groom on the flight, Spin Around is one of the most experienced travellers he's had anything to do with. He looks in good order & will undergo all the usual tests in the coming few days, including having his temperature checked twice daily plus having a routine blood sample."
