Karis Teetan made his presence felt on Derby Day at Sha Tin racecourse yesterday afternoon, as he struck once and rode 4 placings.

He teamed up with trainer Danny Shum in the 5th race on the card, riding Craig's Star to his first ever career win.

The Mauritian jockey had gone close to striking in races 1 and 2, finishing runner-up on both occasions, while he landed 3rd place in races 7 and 9. He remains in 2nd position in the Jockeys' Premiership with 59 wins, 26 behind defending champion Zac Purton.

Karis Teetan was on board the Tony Cruz-trained Helene Leadingstar in the BMW Hong Kong Derby, the third and final leg of the Four-year old championship. However, this partnership finished outside of the placings in this 2000 metre race, won by Furore for trainer Frankie Lor and ridden by Hugh Bowman.
