Baker's Dozen Fait Accompli For Durban Demon
Hong Kong's 12 time Champion Jockey Douglas Whyte, known locally as the Durban Demon, looks an inevitable winner of his 13th title after he has ridden 12 winners in the last six meetings, reports scmp.com. His lone wining ride last night puts him 13 in front of his closest challenger, Zac Purton. Even a fall two weeks ago in the five-horse accident on June 19 couldn't slow down Whyte, who returned four days later to record a treble at Sha Tin. He also scored 56 points to win that meeting's Jockeys' Challenge.
