Hong Kong: Joao Moreira equalled his own record for winners on a single card at Sha Tin on Sunday as he rode six winners, the third time he has achieved that feat.
Moreira, 32, is known as ‘Magic Man’ in Hong Kong, and once again wowed the crowds as he secured wins in the first, second, third, fourth, sixth and eighth races.
The Brazilian is no stranger to riding multiple winners on one card, securing eight wins from eight races in Singapore and six wins at Sapporo racecourse in Japan, as well as his Hong Kong heroics.
Moreira has two more rides on the Sha Tin card as he bids to become the first rider to secure seven wins at one meeting.
