    Zac Purton ended Douglas Whyte's 13-season dominance when claiming his first Hong Kong jockeys' championship in 2013/14 with 112 wins. He raced to the fastest ever 50 in Hong Kong history that season and became only the second rider, after Whyte, to notch 100 wins in a season. He had finished runner-up in 2011/12 and 2012/13, fading late on when troubled with ill health after leading for much of the latter campaign. Purton lost his title when second to Joao Moreira in 2014/15 with 95 wins. He started his career in Brisbane where he was an apprentice sensation, and then moved on to Sydney where he was twice second in the premiership behind perennial champion Darren Beadman. His first G1 win came on Excites in the 2006 Sires Produce Stakes. Purton moved to Hong Kong in September, 2007.
    Hong Kong Champion Jockey (2013/14); Brisbane Champion Jockey (2003 - when still an apprentice); World Super Jockeys Series (Japan) winner (2012).
