Sydney jockey Christian Reith is to ride in Hong Kong for the remainder of the season. The popular rider kicks off his 6 week stint at Sha Tin on Sunday.

Reith had originally been given a three meeting licence but the Hong Kong Jockey Club has now extended this to 11 meetings due to an expected shortage of available jockeys. A numner of key riders are injured and the Club has recenrtly lost Aussie jockey Tye Angland.
