Local Rider Salutes in Hong Kong Mile

December 15, 2017

Jockey Derek Leung claimed his first Group 1 win and became just the second home grown graduate from the HKJC Apprentice Jockey School to win a Group 1 race.

He partnered Beauty Generation to an all the way victory in the Honk Kong Mile over 1600m.

Leung stated " I would like to thank everyone for their support, especially the owner Patrick Kwok for sticking with me today."

Beauty Generation will now head to the paddock for a spell.
