Everyone is talking about a certain Hong Kong-based hoop arriving for The Championships and it is not the racing mecca’s champion jockey Zac Purton.

Purton is an Australian, who rides against the “Magic Man” Joao Moreira every week and probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves for his success.

Last weekend, Purton was in Japan winning the Takamatsunomiya Kinen on Aerovelocity. On Wednesday he rode four winners at Happy Valley. This Saturday he will look to make history with Sacred Falls as he chases a third consecutive Doncaster Mile.

It is the life of an international jockey in 2015. The better you are the more frequent-flyer miles you amass.
