Background:
Age: 30. HKJC Apprentice Jockeys' School graduate Vincent Ho racked up 44 wins as a young rider in New Zealand under the tutelage of leading trainer Lance O'Sullivan. He made a good start to his Hong Kong career with 10 victories in his first season in 2009/10, including a trio of wins he achieved on only his fourth race day in Hong Kong. He sealed the 2010/11 Champion Apprentice title with 39 wins. Ho reached the graduation benchmark on 1 October, 2012 by claiming his 70th win in Hong Kong on board Castle Hero. He notched 33 wins in 2014/15 to be the season's leading homegrown rider. Ho enjoyed his best season to date in 2019/20 with not only a career-high 67 wins but a renewed partnership with the brilliant Golden Sixty saw the pair sweep the Four-Year-Old Classic Series, while also unbeaten in seven runs that term, which culminated in a thrilling Hong Kong Derby victory. Ho followed those triumphs with a career-first G1, saluting with Southern Legend in 2020 Champions Mile, outlasting Beauty Generation by a short-head in the process. Among his 67-seasonal wins, Ho took four other Pattern Races, two at G2 level and two at G3 level as well as a second consecutive Tony Cruz Award as the season's leading homegrown rider. Ho rode a short stint in Europe during the off-season in 2018 and notched a first UK win at the first attempt, partnering the Mark Johnston-trained X Rated to success at Haydock on 9 August. He returned to Britain during the 2019 off-season and competed at the Shergar Cup at Ascot where he won the Shergar Cup Mile aboard the Marcus Tregoning trained-Power Of Darkness, helping the Rest of the World team secure the Shergar Cup.
