Australian jockey Blake Shinn is off the mark in Hong Kong, riding his first winner at Happy Valley.

Shinn had ridden a frustrating five seconds and two thirds at his first two meetings until the breakthrough on the Danny Shum-trained Green Dispatch on Wednesday night.

"I'm pretty emotional to get it out of the way," Shin told the HK Jockey Club.
"I've wanted to ride in Hong Kong for a long time, since I was a little boy, so it's pretty touching to finally be here.
"To be competing on the world stage and to get that first winner out of the way, it's special.
"It has been a little bit frustrating because your only aim is to win but you've got to put things into perspective.
"All in all, I thought I'd been doing everything right but just not winning."
