‘Magic’ Man: Jockey Moreira Makes History, Rides Eight Winners At Sha Tin

Jockey Joao Moreira made history over the weekend when he booted home eight winners on a single card at Hong Kong's Sha Tin Race Course.

The talented Brazilian jockey tallied the eight victories from a total of ten mounts. According to Sporting Life, it was the third time Moreira, who is nicknamed ‘Magic', accomplished such a feat. He previously rode eight winners (out of eight mounts) in 2013 at Kranji in Singapore, and in his native Brazil in 2008.

“I never thought I would ride eight winners in a day here in Hong Kong,” Moreira said afterwards. “…we all know how tough it is where the handicap system make races very even and we've got so many good jockeys in town.”
