SA Champion jockey Lyle Hewitson, who is fighting out a neck and neck duel with the hard-working Northern Cape Champion Muzi Yeni at the top of the national log, will see out the balance of this season before departing for Hong Kong in the second week of August.
He will join Aldo Domeyer and Grant van Niekerk for the new Hong Kong racing season.
The 21 year old champion was allocated a six month contract by the Hong Kong Jockey Club licensing committee last week.
Domeyer (6 months) and Van Niekerk (12 months) have had their contracts renewed.
Hewitson is favoured to lift the title for the second consecutive year.
