Moreira to Ride in Adelaide

Wednesday, 26th April 2017

The South Australian Jockey Club has confirmed that superstar jockey Joao Moreira will ride in Adelaide for the first time on Schweppes Oaks Day at Morphettville on Saturday 6 May. The Brazilian-born Moreira will ride the David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Sheidel in South Australia's first ever million-dollar race – the $1 million Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes over 1200m. "To have a jockey of Moreira's calibre riding here is a great coup for Adelaide and for Morphettville," said SAJC Chair Bodelle Francis. "Not only that, but to have him riding in our first million-dollar race is exactly the kind of high-profile name we believe our Festival of Racing now has the ability to attract."
