Nationality: Italy

Background:
Age: 34. Alberto Sanna has more than 800 career wins including the Premio Parioli in his native Italy and has enjoyed success in France, Germany, Dubai, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Poland and Serbia, as well as Hong Kong. Sanna had long held an ambition to compete full-time in Hong Kong and so spent five seasons riding in Bahrain and Qatar in an attempt to prove himself as a champion jockey. In the 2016/17 season he achieved five domestic Group 1 wins including the 2017 Qatar Emir's Trophy International (US$1 Million). He was crowned Bahrain's champion jockey with a winning strike rate of more than 25% and was runner-up in the Qatar championship. He rode two wins from 19 rides during a brief Hong Kong stint at the end of the 2016/17 season and returned in 2017/18. His second term proved successful and his short-term winter contract was extended until the end of the season. He ended the campaign with 17 wins. He was limited to only six wins in 2018/19 due to two spells on the sidelines with a fractured hip and a fractured ankle.
