The Hong Kong Jockey Club, at the request of Jockey Joao Moreira, publishes below personal announcement on behalf of Moreira:-

I have been suffering from left hip pain which is due to a condition called labral tear, from injury and stress. After consulting experts in the field, I have decided to repeat platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) treatment which I have had once before in 2020. I will be having a certain period of rest, rehabilitation, and physiotherapy after the PRP injection

At this difficult time, I would like to thank the Hong Kong Jockey Club for its understanding and full support for my medical consultation and treatment. And also thank you very much for your support and concern. I hope to return to riding in a three months’ time.
