Teetan rides 400th HK winner

Jockey Karis Teetan landed a treble at Sha Tin on Sunday which included the milestone of his 400th win in Hong Kong aboard Will Power in Race 7.

The dirt specialist took the Class 3 Jordan Handicap (1200m) to record his fourth win from seven starts on the dirt and provide Teetan’s landmark.

“I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t even know to be honest but it’s something special and it takes a lot of hard work. I didn’t even know but it’s something that will encourage me now to work harder and look forward to more winners.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with all of the trainers, owners and everyone involved – I’m really enjoying it and I just hope it keeps rolling,” Teetan said.

The Mauritian enjoyed his best campaign last season, tallying a single-season personal high of 93 wins to finish third in the premiership and also bagged his second Sha Tin Group 1 on Mr Stunning in the 2020 Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m).

“I’ve never sort of counted the winners. I just ride as many winners as I can but to get to this number, it’s big enough for me at this stage and I’m really looking forward to growing that number,” the 30-year-old said.

Will Power was a last-season sensation, rising 28 points through the handicap with three wins to his name and today returned in fine form, lugging top-weight to a first-up Class 3 success.
