Background:
Age: 31. Born in Kobe, Japan, Matsuyama developed an interest in racing as he regularly attended races with his father and grandfather at Hanshin Racecourse. In 2006, he enrolled to the JRA Riding School jockey training programme and started riding in races in March, 2009, where he scored two wins at his riding debut at Kokura Racecourse. He was crowned the JRA Champion Rookie with 36 wins in that same year. Matsuyama notched his first Pattern win with Smart Gear in the G3 Chunichi Shimbun Hai in 2012, his first top-class success with Corin Berry in the 2015 JPN G1 JBC Sprint, and his first Classic win aboard Al Ain in the 2017 G1 Satsuki Sho. Matsuyama reached new heights in his career in 2020 as he partnered Daring Tact to become the sixth ever, and the first to do so unbeaten, Fillies' Triple Crown winner in Japan. He has so far amassed 806 JRA wins and currently sits second behind Christophe Lemaire in this year's JRA Jockey's Championship. Has not ridden in Hong Kong previously.
