    Background:
    A product of Hong Kong's Apprentice Jockeys' School, Derek Leung cut his teeth as a young rider in New Zealand under the tutelage of trainer Lance O'Sullivan. He was assigned as apprentice jockey to Paul O'Sullivan's stable upon his return to Hong Kong. Leung was involved in a four-way battle for the 2009/10 Hong Kong apprentice jockeys' championship but came up five wins short of eventual champion Keith Yeung. He reached the graduation benchmark after claiming his 70th win on board Star Of Fame on 1 June, 2011. He reached a personal best total of 33 wins in the 2015/16 season. He received the 2016/17 Tony Cruz Award as the leading home-grown rider (25 wins), despite twice being side-lined with injuries during the campaign.
