HAPPY VALLEY RACECOURSE 

2018 Longines International Jockeys’ Championship

logines.png

The Jockey Challenge will be conducted on the four races of the LONGINES International Jockeys’ Championship, that are, Races 4, 5, 7 and 8.

 

The 2018 LONGINES IJC is a four-race competition in which points will be awarded as follows in each race:

12 points for 1st

6 points for 2nd 

4 points for 3rd

The ranking of each jockey will be determined by the total number of points earned over all four races and the IJC champion will be the jockey with the highest accumulated points.

In the case of a dead-heat for any of the first three placings, points will be added and then divided by the number of horses involved. In the LONGINES IJC, substitute jockeys are eligible for points and if a count-back is required it will go back to 4th places. Local jockeys with 2lb or 3lb claims are eligible for selection for the LONGINES IJC but there will be no claiming allowance in the four LONGINES IJC races. Apprentice jockeys do not qualify for selection.

A precocious sensation, he enjoyed a stunning Dubai Carnival in 2011, at age 19, winning major races for the Godolphin operation, and that momentum took him to a famous English Derby win in June of that year aboard Pour Moi for Fabre and Coolmore. He then headed to Hong Kong for a short stint in 2011/12, notching one winner from 42 rides. Barzalona won the 2012 G1 Dubai World Cup aboard Monterosso and the 2017 Breeders’ Cup Turf on Talismanic.

With trainer Mark Johnston’s support he finished runner-up in the 2011 British champion jockey race. He was retained by Godolphin from 2012 to 2014, during which time his haul included the G1 Dubai World Cup on African Story. Riding freelance in 2015, he achieved 132 wins to claim the UK champion jockey title and repeated in 2017 (155 wins) and again in 2018 (148 wins). De Sousa has notched an admirable 16 winners in each of his two short winter stints in Hong Kong (2015/16 and 2016/17) and is currently based in Hong Kong.
