    Background:
    Michael Chang served three years as an apprentice jockey with trainer David Wilson in the UK before returning to Hong Kong in the late 1980s to commence his career with the Club. He worked his way through the ranks before becoming Assistant Trainer to Gary Ng. He then served Alex Wong, David Hayes and Sean Woods in the same capacity before taking out a full licence in the 2005/06 season. He notched a career best 40 wins in the 2012/13 season and that campaign also brought his first Group race win thanks to Vital Flyer in the HKG3 Sha Tin Sprint Trophy. In October, 2014, he saddled his G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen runner-up Rich Tapestry to win the G1 Santa Anita Sprint Championship, the horse making history as the first Hong Kong galloper to win a race in the USA. He had succeeded with the same horse in the G3 Mahab Al Shimaal in Dubai earlier that year, while Rich Tapestry also won the G3 Al Shindagha Sprint in 2016.
