  • Aged 31, Zac Purton ended Douglas Whyte's 13-season dominance when claiming his first HK jockeys' championship in 2013/14 with 112 wins. He raced to the fastest ever 50 in HK history that season and became only the second rider, after Whyte, to ride 100 winners in a season. He had finished runner-up in 2011/12 and 2012/13, fading late on after leading for much of the latter campaign. He won the World Super Jockeys Series in Japan in December, 2012, and his international G1 wins include the King's Stand Stakes (2012 Little Bridge), the Hong Kong Mile (2012 Ambitious Dragon), the Singapore International Airlines Cup (2013 Military Attack), the Hong Kong Vase (2013 Dominant) and the Doncaster Mile (2014 Sacred Falls). The Australian won the Brisbane jockeys' premiership as an apprentice in 2003, and seeking a fresh challenge, later moved to Sydney where in two season's he came second only to perennial champion, Darren Beadman. His first G1 win came atop Excites in the 2006 Sires' Produce Stakes while Fellowship provided his first Hong Kong G1 victory in the 2010 Stewards' Cup. Purton's HK career tally stands at 437.
