Peter Ho to ride in Singapore in two short-term periods
The Singapore Turf Club has granted a visiting jockey’s licence to Macau jockey Peter Ho Wah Lun to ride during two periods at Kranji this year - 13 until 21 November 2017, and 25 November until 5 December 2017.
The 42-year-old Hong Kong-born jockey recently rode at the Singapore race meetings on 15 and 17 September 2017, finishing unplaced in seven rides.
After kicking off his riding career in Hong Kong in the 1991/1992 racing season, riding 30 winners all-up in six seasons, Ho then moved to Macau in 1998, having since established himself there as a leading jockey totalling more than 500 winners to-date.
He won the premiership last year on 52 winners with a winning strike rate of 20%. This season, he sits second on the log on eight winners.
The Group 1 Macau Derby aboard the Vincent Chong-trained Best Season in 2014 and the Macau Invitational Jockeys Challenge at Taipa in 2013 rank highly among Ho’s career highlights.
Interestingly, his most recent ‘black type’ win came aboard the currently Mok Zhan Lun-trained Sandtop in the Group 2 Spring Trophy in February 2016.
Ho goes to scale at 53kgs.
