Moreira Rides First HK Winner

Tuesday, 22nd October 2013

Brilliant young Singapore jockey Joao Moreira rode his first winner since moving to Hong Kong when piloting the Derek Cruz-trained Noble Deluxe to a final-stride victory in the last race at Sha Tin on Sunday, reports scmp.com. "I had a couple of seconds and some favourites who didn't win, so I was feeling a little bit down but I finished on top of the world," Moreira said. "It's nice anywhere you go to get a winner early." Moreira had previously partnered Noble Deluxe when claiming the International Jockeys Championship at Happy Valley last year and he said that experience proved helpful on Sunday. "I think it was important that I had ridden him before… I thought I'll just go back and ride him like the last time when I won. He had a good turn of foot - he has been a very good horse to me," he said.
