Hewitson hits home first Japan Group Race

Lyle Hewitson'riding career has taken a 360 turn since he arrived in Japan a few weeks back with winners all round.

The likeable double South African Champion Jockey won his first Group race in Japan taking out the Group 2 3yo 1800m Spring Stakes (Japan 2000 Guineas Trial) on 16.7 chance GALORE CREEK (Kinshasa no Kiseki x Gold Relic (Kingmambo)) at Nakayama today.

Earlier in the day Hewitson booted home SUI (Candy Ride x Eltimaas (Ghostzapper)) in Race 2, gate to wire success.

Hewitson suffered from a lack of opportunities and number of rides in the unforgiving Hong Kong circuit but has blossomed in the land of the rising son.
