Congratulations to Gavin Lerena for winning one of the four international races at China's very first race meeting.

From [www.thoroughbrednews.com.au] (bolding mine):

22 Sep 2013 | China Horse Club
With representatives from all corners of the globe the first internationally endorsed thoroughbred event was held in Mainland China on Saturday with the inaugural 2013 China Equine Cultural Festival Race Day in Hohhot, China.

The China Horse Club and the Hohhot Sports Bureau brought together jockeys and trainers and thoroughbreds from both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.

Jockeys Joao Moreira (Brazil), Kevin Shea (South Africa), Thierry Thulliez (France), Danny Beasley (Australia), Gavin Lerena (South Africa), Michael Cahill (Australia), Darryll Holland (Great Britain), Jim Byrne (Australia), S’Manga Khumalo (South Africa), Ryan Wiggins (Australia), KB Soo (Malaysia) and Ryan Plumb (Australia) were in attendence.

Joining them were stewards, racing officials, race day staff, veterinarians, trainers, training staff, sponsors, vendors and media from all corners of the globe.


On the track riding honours were shared between four international riders (three from the Singapore Turf Club) while Ireland’s Coolmore’s were the star vendor with three of the four winners coming from their team. The Irish also found a silver lining in the win of Nassau (Aus) in the Longines Mile with the mare a daughter of Coolmore’s very own Rock of Gibraltar.


The sprint feature, the Sir Owen Glenn Spring Cup (1000m), looked set to be in the keeping of the Australians until South Africa’s Gavin Lerena delivered Outpost (Ire) with a well-timed run shoot passed Flaming Aura (Aus) and Vinson Massif (Ire).
