    Zac Purton ended Douglas Whyte's 13-season dominance with his first Hong Kong jockeys' championship in 2013/14 (112 wins).

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 behind perennial champion Darren Beadman. Purton moved to Hong Kong in September, 2007. His major wins include three at the HKIR: Hong Kong Mile (2012 Ambitious Dragon), Hong Kong Sprint (2014 Aerovelocity), Hong Kong Vase (2013 Dominant).
