Nobody in Hong Kong celebrates a win the way Brett Prebble does but the little voice in his head that so often tells him to punch the sky and hoot and holler came to his rescue yesterday when he lost a desperately tight photo to Sky King and Olivier Doleuze.
Brett Prebble is an Australian jockey who first moved to Hong Kong in 2002, having already won two Melbourne premierships. For many years, he was Douglas Whyte's arch-rival, finishing second in the jockeys' championship six times, including a narrow loss on the final day in 2009-10. In 2010, he was the first jockey to ride six winners in a day, a feat since accomplished by Whyte and Joao Moreira. He has been associated with Hong Kong stars like Bullish Luck, Sacred Kingdom, Cape Of Good Hope and Lucky Nine.
