Mallyon and McEvoy contest 2017 World All-Star Jockeys at Sapporo
09 Aug 2017 | Japan Racing Association 
The World All-Star Jockeys (WASJ) is an international event launched by the Japan Racing Association. Formerly called the World Super Jockeys Series since its establishment in 1987, it has welcomed more than 200 top-caliber jockeys from Europe, North America, Oceania and Asia and held over two days in late November or early December at either Tokyo or Hanshin Racecourse. The event was given a new title, and was moved to the last weekend of August and to Sapporo Racecourse in northern Japan in 2015.

This year’s event welcomes six outstanding jockeys from France, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and United Kingdom in joining one NAR (National Association of Racing; local public racing) jockey and seven JRA jockeys in their bid for the title. A team competition was added to the regular individual contest since 2015, in which the overseas and NAR jockeys form “Team WAS (World All-Star)” and compete against “Team JRA” to attain the most points as a team.

The first two of the four-race series will be conducted on August 26th (Sat), while the third and fourth will be held the following day.
