Hewitson’s 200 On The Board

Kuda-sponsored SA Champion jockey-elect Lyle Hewitson reached his 200 winner mark for the season  at Fairview on Tuesday when he booted Atkinson Grimshaw home in the final event.

The win completed a hat-trick on the day and all three were for trainer Gavin Smith.

Hewitson is now 55 winners ahead of nearest challenger Warren Kennedy and is currently on a 15% win strike-rate and a close on 40% place strike-rate.

He looks set on becoming SA champion jockey for the third time in four seasons at the send of this term, and unconfirmed reports suggest he could be heading overseas for another stint in Japan.
