Magic Man Confirmed For Moir

Thursday, 7th September 2017

After opening the Hong Kong season last Sunday with the first five winners on the card, world class jockey Joao Moreira is set to literally light up Moonee Valley on September 29, reports racing.com. Although his ride in the Gr1 Moir Stakes is yet to be confirmed, the race is sure to attract the cream of the sprinting ranks with the caliber of Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign likely to be central to the line-up. A regular to Flemington for the VRC Carnivals and having last ridden in Victoria on Super Saturday in March, Moreira has yet to ride under lights at The Valley and is excited at the prospect, "I haven't ridden in a night race at The Valley before, so I'm excited about coming over for Moir Stakes Night and I'm sure it will be a great atmosphere. I always love coming to Australia, the people are very friendly and they love horse racing, so hopefully I can ride some winners and make the fans happy."
