    Brazilian sensation Joao Moreira, known as ''Magic Man'', notched more than 1000 wins in South America. He relocated to Singapore in 2009 and after finishing third in the premiership in that first season he proceeded to dominate the Singapore circuit for four years. He moved to Hong Kong in October 2013 and finished runner-up in the title race that term with 97 wins before clinching a first championship in a record smashing 2014/15 campaign that yielded an all-time high 145 wins - he demolished that record in 2015/16 with 168 wins, and improved again in 2016/17 with 170 wins, 63 more than Zac Purton in second. He has also ridden in Australia, Britain, France, USA, Germany, Japan, Macau, Sweden and the UAE; he partnered Rapper Dragon in 2017 as the horse became the first to win all three legs of the Four-Year-Old Classic Series (Hong Kong Classic Mile, Hong Kong Classic Cup, BMW Hong Kong Derby).
