    Zac Purton ended Douglas Whyte's 13-season dominance with his first Hong Kong jockeys' championship in 2013/14 (112 wins). He raced to what was then the fastest 50 in Hong Kong history that season and became the second rider, after Whyte, to notch 100 wins in a season. Purton lost his title when second to Joao Moreira in 2014/15 with 95 wins. He started his career in Brisbane and was an apprentice sensation, winning the premiership there in 2003, and then moved on to Sydney where he was twice second in the premiership. Purton moved to Hong Kong in September, 2007. His major wins include the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2012 and five at the LONGINES HKIR. He notched his second Hong Kong century in 2016/17, ending the term with 107 wins.
    Hong Kong Champion Jockey (2013/14); Brisbane Champion Jockey (2003 - when still an apprentice); World Super Jockeys Series (Japan) winner (2012).
