BATTLING local jockey Jackie C. K. Tse received the biggest break of his career yesterday when he was named to ride the brilliant Australian-trained but Hong Kong-owned colt, Danewin, in the Japan Cup on November 26. Joint owners, Sunny Yam and Alex Cheung, had not been expected to make a decision until after Damien Oliver had ridden Danewin in Saturday's Mackinnon Stakes in Melbourne. But they brought the decision forward after striking a deal which will see Tse, a former champion apprentice but yet to ride a winner in the territory this season, partner Danewin in Tokyo while Oliver will be offered the ride should Danewin make it to the Dubai World Cup next spring. Yam confirmed the arrangements yesterday. 'Jackie for the Japan and Damien for Dubai,' he smiled. 'There is no reason behind the decision other than it is our personal choice. 'Jackie has a very good record on Danewin which is something that is often forgotten by the press in Australia as all they want to do is criticise him most unfairly. 'It is only because of the tremendous pressure they put Jackie under every time he rides that Damien is now on the horse. But I'm sure Jackie will do a good job in the Japan Cup. It is an honour to be selected to compete in the race. We want to share that honour between Australia and Hong Kong.' The Japan Cup, the world's richest race, is run over 2,400 metres. Previously that distance sapped Danewin's stamina reserves to the limit. Indeed, his sire, the boom stallion Danehill, did not come into his own when in training in England until dropped back from a mile to sprint distances. 'Yes the distance is our worry,' agreed Yam. 'But we're hoping that now he may last out the trip as he's a year older and that much stronger and more mature. 'If he can run in the first three for Jackie we will be absolutely delighted. It would be a racing miracle if they could win.' Tse, 25, has won two Group One events on Danewin in Australia, the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick and the Rosehill Guineas. Last season, he also finished agonisingly close seconds on him in the VRC and the AJC Derbys and most recently rode him into second in last month's Group One Epsom Handicap. 'I couldn't be happier,' Tse said yesterday. 'In fact, I'm still a bit numb as I can't quite believe I will be riding in the Japan Cup. 'For the last year it has been my ambition to ride Danewin in the race and now Sunny's loyalty has seen it come true.'
