Lyle On Fire In Japan

Second double

The fortunes of South African champion jockey Lyle Hewitson continued to flourish in Japan on when he rode his second double on Saturday in his third race meeting since arriving in the country.

Tabnews reports that Hewitson rode three winners last week at Nakayama Racecourse but they were all on the dirt. This weekend they moved to the turf and that did not stop the 22-year-old South African from notching up another double.

His first win came up in Race 5, a Maiden Plate over 1600m, aboard Charoite, in which he beat Apollo Victori by 0.50 lengths.

He then continued his run in Race 9, a Plate race for three-year-olds over 2000m, where he rode Conduccion. In this race he beat Lord Hommage by 0.50 lengths.

    From the time Lyle landed in Japan he has been riding 1st,2nd,3rd or 4th favourite in a race nine out of ten times.
    In the meetings Lyle has rode in the betting odds in races goes something like 2.8 favourite 3.2,3.8, 4.5 and then 13.9 up to 287.1 in ten to fifteen horse fields.
    The winner usually comes from one of the four or five favourites.
    So the chances are Lyle winning a race have been extremely high for when he does ride an outsider it runs accordingly.
    He is making tons of money,for sure.

    Well done Lyle….👍👍 Japan is a hard place to make a name….not that you have to in my opinion…..They would not even give Joe Moreira a contract.
    At least you are getting rides with realistic chances.
    All the best and we are proud of you👍

    You are a true gentleman and a fantastic ambassador to our country.
