Dennis Yip Chor-hong
Age: 56
Hong Kong Jockey Club Apprentice Jockeys’ School graduate Dennis Yip was licensed as a jockey in Hong Kong between 1984 and 1993. He rode a total of 59 winners before moving on to learn the training game overseas and then acting as assistant to multiple champion trainer, Brian Kan. In 2002/03 he became a licensed trainer in his own right. Yip trained more than 30 winners in each of his seasons as a trainer until he fell short with 26 wins in the 2019/20 season, despite a solid back half to the campaign following a slow start. The 2011/12 season saw him reach the 50-win mark as he finished fourth in the trainers’ championship. He maintained his upward curve in 2012/13 as he sent out 69 winners to clinch his first trainers’ title, sealing victory over Tony Cruz in the very last race of the season. His biggest win that term came with Go Baby Go in the HKG3 Bauhinia Sprint Trophy, while All You Wish took Champion Griffin honours and the Most Improved Horse title. Yip became the sixth active Hong Kong trainer to reach the 800-win mark by saddling a double at Happy Valley with Passing Fashion and Sunny And Gold in 2022.
