    Age: 24
    Age: 24. James McDonald made a big impression in Hong Kong on his LONGINES IJC debut when still a teenager back in 2011, with the precocious Kiwi finishing runner-up to Frankie Dettori. He returned the following May and partnered Xtension to victory in the May, 2012 G1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin. Champion Apprentice in his homeland, he went on to claim the Premiership there twice, in 2008/09 and latterly with a New Zealand record tally of 207 for the 2010/2011 season. In 2012 he won a first New Zealand Derby. Now based in Australia, he clinched his first Sydney Premiership in July, 2014, with 72 wins on the board, riding two winners on the final day of the season to draw that number clear of Nash Rawiller. His first G1 win came in the 2008 New Zealand Bloodstock Breeders Stakes and his most recent was Holler's Canterbury Stakes in March, 2016 one of four top-flight wins so far this season.
