Champion jockey Douglas Whyte continued his winning ways yesterday with another double, keeping up his hot winning strike rate with the David Hayes yard but sacrificing a third victory for a friend. The Durban Demon's record of getting off losers and on to winners is second to none but he appeared to have erred yesterday when he rode Super Wongchoy for Alex Wong Yu-on in preference to eventual winner Pretty Trio in the sixth on the all-weather. 'Alex is still looking for his 13th winner this season and asked me to ride the horse in this race quite some time ago,' Whyte said. 'I might have got off a winner but I'd give up a lot more than Pretty Trio for Alex. Since the first day I walked into Hong Kong, he has been my staunchest supporter and there was never any question I would ride anything else today.' Punters took that lead and backed Super Wongchoy down to favouritism but the gelding never looked a chance. Whyte nevertheless took a double on the card, winning on Stay Young in the Sha Tin Mile then followed up quickly in the following race with Equator Kid for Hayes to keep his amazing strike rate with the stable. 'I think Douglas has had six rides for me this season and five have won,' said Hayes after Equator Kid managed to bring up his second Hong Kong success over the Sha Tin 1,800-metre course. 'It was unfortunate this horse got galloped on a little while back because he has missed the races that were really ideal for him, the 2,400 metres events like the Queen Mother's Cup and Champions And Chater. 'That was what we had him set for then he got hurt and it just wasn't possible to have him ready and this has been a bit of a consolation win. Just like the first day he won here, there was a good tempo on and he appreciated that.' Although the win was relatively narrow, Whyte said he always felt Equator Kid would win. 'He feels like a real 2,400-metre horse. Just a grinder. 'I think at that longer trip he could sit back off a good pace and come with a very strong run,' the jockey said. 'Today David told me he thought the horse was really spot on and with the good speed on, he travelled well and produced. 'Really, I always thought he would be in the finish today. That keeps my record intact - I think the only one of David's I didn't win on was Wyndam Easy one day.'
