    Background:
    Douglas Whyte was born in Durban, South Africa, hence his nickname ''The Durban Demon''. He was champion jockey in Hong Kong for 13 consecutive seasons, losing his title to Zac Purton in 2013/14. Whyte first sat on a horse at age two and developed his skills riding in the countryside with his late father, himself a former jockey. A South African Jockey Academy graduate, in 1996 he rode weekends in Singapore and Malaysia and undertook a short contract in Hong Kong at the start of the 1996/97 season. He returned for the 1997/98 season and made Hong Kong his home. He is the only jockey ever to reach 1,000 wins in Hong Kong, and his tally of 114 wins in 2005/06 stood as a record until Joao Moreira surpassed it in 2014/15. He holds the records for overall career wins (more than 1700) in Hong Kong and most career prize money won (over HK$1.5 billion).
    Achievements:
    Hong Kong Champion Jockey (13 consecutive seasons from 2000/01 to 2012/13); LONGINES IJC winner (2002, 2007, 2008); World Super Jockeys Series (Japan) winner (2004); six wins in a day: 7 April, 2013 (a Hong Kong record-equalling feat at the time); record holder for overall career wins in Hong Kong and most career prize money won (over HK$1.5 billion).
