John Moore to retire

Hong Kong Trainer - John Moore

Legendary trainer John Moore will retire at the end of next season, in line with the rules set down by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

The rules relating to trainers are quite simple, upon reaching the age of 65, trainers must hang up their hats.

Moore, (who turns 70 next year), managed to obtain a five-year extension, allowing him to continue until the end of next season.

The terms of the extension state he would not be allowed to continue training after reaching 70 and the HKJC have reaffirmed that decision, meaning Moore will finish his career at the end of the 2020 season. 

The Australian-born trainer, and son of the famous jockey George Moore, obtained his licence in 1985 and in his 34 years in the job has produced 1,675 winners.

None better than his current world champion miler (on turf), Beauty Generation.

The Road To Rock gelding has smashed all records, winning 17 of his 30 career starts, including 12 at Group level and has amassed more than $13 million (AUS) in prize money.

Moore also trained multiple Group 1 winners Able Friend, Designs On Rome, Viva Pataca and Military Attack.

He is currently in a battle with rival trainer John Size as they chase the crown for the Trainer’s Premiership, with Size holding a slender 74-72 lead and just three meetings left in the current season.
