Mosse Could Become First Retained HK Hoop Since Beadman

Friday, 3rd July 2015

In Hong Kong's highly competitive riding arena, exceptional French-born jockey Gerald Mosse could become the first retained jockey since Darren Beadman's tenure with John Moore in the 2011-12 season. According to racing.smcp.com, Hong Kong trainer Manfred Man Ka-leung has submitted an application to local authorities for Mosse, now 48-years-old, to be his retained stable rider for next season. The move, which required the support of a minimum 85 percent of the stable's owners, follows the licensing committee's decision to deny Mosse a full time riding permit. In his more than 20 years of riding in Hong Kong, Mosse's CV includes over 600 victories, among them a veritable swag of the region's biggest feature events.
