Chad Schofield Granted HK Licence
The Hong Kong Jockey Club has granted young Australian jockey Chad Schofield a six-month contract to ride in Hong Kong next season, reports AAP. Schofield, who is currently enjoying a stint in the UK and is booked to ride Criterion in tomorrow's Gr1 Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot, will take up his contract when the new season starts on September 1. His contract will expire in February 2016 but it is highly likely that he will be offered an extension. The other new face among the Hong Kong jockey ranks next season will be South African Richard Fourie, currently stable jockey for champion South African trainer Justin Snaith.
