She’s Apples For Champion Jockey

By Brad Gray

Hugh Bowman was last night officially crowned the Longines World’s Best Jockey for 2017 at a ceremony in Hong Kong.

It caps a remarkable year for the champion hoop who won 10 of the world’s top 100 Group One races. Six of those came on Winx, which wasn’t lost on a typical humble Bowman.

“This year, one of those variables is a horse called Winx, which has helped my cause,” Bowman told the Herald Sun.

“She’s certainly been a headline act for me and, as nice as it is to be recognised as the Longines world’s best jockey this year, my association with her exceeds that.”

Bowman (142 points) beat Ryan Moore (124) and Frankie Dettori to claim top honours and become the first Australian jockey to win the award.

Check out this awesome highlights package Longines put together. Congrats again Hugh.
