Horse racing is much more than an excuse for gambling. It is a love for the beauty, grace and speed of the horse. It can also be an intellectual battle of examining competing facts and trying to formulate the future from results of the past. In some ways it is an investigation, as performed by an eager detective. And in other ways it can be the thrill of a crossword puzzle, with multiple possible responses, but ultimately only one correct answer. It is a thing of beauty as much as it is a matter of commerce. I have been involved with horse racing in both practical and intellectual ways. From time spent as an apprentice jockey, to later the research of bloodlines in the multimillion dollar world of thoroughbred breeding and sales. And for the past twelve years I have provided speedrating information to the racing industry and public through my company: Speedratings - Leonard Marlborough.

Seasons Star

November 12th 2012 04:03
Seasons Star, a 3 year old bay gelding by Not A Single Doubt - out of Annie's River - remains undefeated in Hong Kong after winning the Detroit Handicap (1000 metres) at Happy Valley on the 7th of November. This follows his debut victory at Sha Tin over the same distance.

Trained by Tony Cruz, Seasons Star was ridden by Matthew Chadwick on debut - while Douglas Whyte replaced him for his most recent win (below).

Seasons Star is closely related to G2 winner in South Africa, Sharks Bay.


The doomsayers have been out for Douglas Whyte and his chance of success this year in winning yet another Jockey's Premiership in Hong Kong. Whyte's win on Seasons Star broke a drought of 17 losing rides. Since winning on Seasons Star, Whyte has ridden 3 more winners, and is now a clear 2nd on the table (16 wins) behind Premiership leader, Zac Purton (20 wins)
