Glyn Schofield sensed a run of bad luck was coming to an end when his mount Sound of Silence was scratched at the barrier at Happy Valley on Wednesday. And the unlikely omen proved to be valid when the popular South African contrived a win with Super Wongchoy ($102) in the final event at Sha Tin yesterday. Schofield had been enduring a horror run that had blown out to 49 successive losing rides before he was legged on board Super Wongchoy. Yet he rode the six-year-old like a man at the peak of his form, holding his nerve admirably when things got tight in the straight before driving Super Wongchoy through the gap and on to a 11/4 length win from Greenessy (Howard Cheng Yue-tin) and Smart Horse (Eric Saint-Martin). 'I believe things come in threes and I'd already had two bad things happen in the previous couple of weeks,' Schofield recalled. 'Firstly, Rising Win reared at the start and left me behind at Happy Valley and then Summerland collapsed at the end of his race last week - that one was really sad. 'So when Sound of Silence was scratched behind the barrier on Wednesday night, I thought to myself 'that's the third one, it should be over now'.' Schofield has been one of Hong Kong's best jockeys for the past two seasons so his recent run of ill luck has been a real mental test, as much as anything. 'The most important thing when you are going through something like this is not to panic,' Schofield continued. 'I knew if I keep putting them in the right position, and doing all the same the things I was doing when I was going well, that it would turn around. 'All the same, it's a nice feeling to break through. I won on Super Wongchoy before on the all-weather and he really sprinted strongly in the final stages to win by a decent margin. For that reason, I wasn't too worried about being held up. I knew he was going well enough to win and if the gap didn't come, I still had time to go around them and win.' Super Wongchoy completed a double for trainer Alex Wong Yu-On, who had earlier taken the second race with Joy Trumps (Douglas Whyte).
