Bowman Wins HK International Jockeys' Championship

Thursday, 8th December 2016

Hugh Bowman has edged out fellow world-class hoop Ryan Moore by just four points to claim the Hong Kong International Jockeys' Championship at Happy Valley overnight, reports the South China Morning Post. “It’s exciting; it’s great to get one over Ryan because he’s pretty hard to beat at any time,” said Bowman. “But these competitions are great to come to and compete in what is a little bit more relaxed atmosphere than Cox Plates and Melbourne Cups and the like." He added: "On these nights it’s all about competing against some great riders and if you can come out on top, so much the better. This is probably the first time I’ve come to Happy Valley thinking I could win...It has capped off a great 2016.”
