J. Moore

Birthday: Mar 17, 1950

Nationality: Australia

John Moore has been involved in Hong Kong racing since the professional era commenced in 1971 and is Hong Kong's longest-serving and winning-most trainer. A former amateur jockey, he began training in 1985, before which he held the position of assistant trainer to his late famous father, George. In 2007 he prepared an international G1 double thanks to Viva Pataca in the Audemars Piguet QEII Cup and Able One in the Champions Mile and, in a feat perhaps unprecedented in the sport, won the same two races with the same two horses three years later. The seven-time Hong Kong Champion Trainer was the first to saddle 1000 wins in Hong Kong and was the leading prize money earner for 12 seasons straight until John Size topped the earnings table in 2017/18. The stable has also produced the last six gallopers to be named Hong Kong Horse of the Year - Military Attack, Designs On Rome, Able Friend, Werther, Rapper Dragon and Beauty Generation.

Hong Kong Champion Trainer (1985/86, 1990/91, 1991/92, 1992/93 [tied with David Hill], 1994/95, 2010/11, 2014/15); Hong Kong record holder for all-time career prize money (HK$1.85 billion).
