Karis Teetan surged past his best ever season’s tally of 84 wins late last month and the man dubbed the ‘Mauritian Magician’ is showing no signs of slowing with a full book of 11 rides this Sunday (5 July) at Sha Tin, including the exciting youngster Armando in the Class 2 Yan Chau Tong Handicap (1200m).
The 30-year-old excelled through June with 11 wins, stealing the spotlight from the champion jockey protagonists Zac Purton and Joao Moreira, and he kicked off July with yet another treble, making it 19 wins from his last 10 race meetings. That takes his seasonal tally to 88 with four meetings left in the 2019/20 Hong Kong racing season.
“It’s gone very well – it’s toward the end of the season and I’m pretty happy with the way things are going, there’s a few more meetings to go and I’m still fully focussed,” Teetan said.
“If things can go into next season like it is at the moment, with the support I’m getting, I’d be pretty happy with that.”
Teetan pairs with talented three-year-old Armando (119lb) in the day’s finale after the duo caught the eye on debut over 1200m, closing strongly to finish fourth behind Mr Croissant (128lb), who he faces once again.
“It was a good run – I thought he finished off the race pretty strongly so we’re looking forward to him coming back again,” Teetan said.
