Age: 35
A product of The Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Apprentice Jockeys’ School, Derek Leung cut his teeth as a young rider in New Zealand under the tutelage of trainer Lance O’Sullivan. He was assigned as apprentice jockey to Paul O’Sullivan’s stable upon his return to Hong Kong and reached the graduation benchmark after claiming his 70th win aboard Star Of Fame on 1 June, 2011. Leung amassed 37 wins in the 2017/18 season, enough to earn a second consecutive Tony Cruz Award as the leading homegrown rider. That season also saw Leung notch a first career Group 1 aboard subsequent Horse of the Year Beauty Generation in the 2017 Hong Kong Mile. The rider was also in the plate for Group 2 and Group 3 wins on the gelding. Leung achieved a personal best 48 wins through season 2021/22, including a G2 Jockey Club Cup victory with Reliable Team. Leung notched his 400th Hong Kong win in 2022 at Happy Valley.
