Hong Kong great Douglas Whyte will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Champion Awards ceremony on Sunday, 14 July.

The South African is being honoured for his incredible career in the saddle, which saw him crowned Hong Kong’s Champion Jockey for 13 consecutive seasons from 2000/01 to 2012/13.

Whyte retired in February 2019 as the all-time leading rider in Hong Kong with 1,813 race victories, his mounts having accrued more than HK$1.5 billion in prize money. He numbers the Hong Kong Cup, Hong Kong Mile and Hong Kong Vase among his several major Group 1 victories, as well as multiple wins in the QEII Cup and the Hong Kong Derby.
