While Australian-bred thoroughbreds and jockeys had the whip hand at the Hong Kong International race day on Sunday, two major race winners could soon arrive in Australia for the rich Sydney autumn and then the Melbourne spring carnivals.

Hong Kong Cup winner Akeed Mofeed and Hong Kong Vase winner Dominant have been touted as possible tourists in 2014.

Trainer Richard Gibson is considering the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000 metres) at Randwick in April for Akeed Mofeed, while surprise Vase winner Dominant could be transferred to an Australian stable for a Caulfield and Melbourne cups campaign.

Gibson said four-year-old Akeed Mofeed could campaign in Australia in 2014 before being retired to stud, potentially at the South Australian property formerly known as Lindsay Park, which was recently bought by the horse's owner, Pan Sutong.

''The horse deserves his chance to race abroad and there are some nice options for him, including Australia,'' he said. ''It's a good time for him to travel and enhance his stud value.''

Expat Australian trainer John Moore said he sourced Dominant from Europe to win the Hong Kong Vase but said the cups double in Melbourne was now on the agenda and the horse would be transferred to the stables of John, Michael and Wayne Hawkes if he made the trip to Australia.

Moore told RSN that Dominant would most likely be sent to Australia ''four months before the big cup races to make sure he has got the time to acclimatise, and hopefully he can repeat what he did here''.

Dominant's rider and Hong Kong's leading jockey, Australia's Zac Purton, could also be back for the autumn carnival and said he was keen to take more rides in the big races here.

Purton has been based in Hong Kong for the past five years.

Five of the 10 winners on Sunday were bred in Australia before being exported as either unraced or lightly raced horses.

Hong Kong does not have a commercial thoroughbred breeding industry and horses are sourced from overseas. More than 100 have been exported from Australia to Hong Kong this year.
