    Matthew Poon joined Hong Kong's race-riding ranks in March, 2017. He landed a win on his first race-day but also suffered an injury that side-lined him for three weeks. Upon returning he raced to 20 wins and a reduction to his 10lb claim within 14 fixtures and 112 rides. The HKJC Apprentice Jockeys' School student embarked on overseas training in South Australia in June, 2015 and was based with leading trainer Richard Jolly. His first race ride, a winner, came in October of that year. At the end of his first season, in July, 2016, he was crowned South Australia's Champion Apprentice Jockey with 51 wins. His second season in Adelaide saw him ride 65 winners and at the time of his departure for Hong Kong in March, 2017, he was sitting second in the South Australian jockeys' championship. Poon commenced his Hong Kong career with an overall record of 117 wins from 862 rides at a rate of 13.57%. His first pattern win came aboard Faaltless in the SIN G3 Garden City Trophy at Kranji in August, 2017. He is indentured to trainer David Hall and his minimum riding weight is 103 lbs.
