According to Daniel Moor, The Hong Kong Jockey Club has gone ‘above and beyond’ the call of duty to ensure that he and fellow Australian jockey Luke Currie were able to beat the arrival deadline into Hong Kong after the Hong Kong Government announced a two-week ban on flights into the city from several countries, including Australia, due to the Covid situation.

That ban came into effect last Saturday, a day before Moor and Currie were due to leave Australia necessitating a frantic change of plans which had a happy ending, courtesy of the Hong Kong Jockey Club who arranged a private plane to transport the two jockeys between countries in time for them to arrive in Hong Kong a day before the flight ban kicked in.

“The Hong Kong Jockey Club just made everything so easy. They obviously did a lot of work behind the scenes where they scrambled to organise the jet for Luke and I to get over, and we’ve made it by the cut-off by the skin of our teeth,” Moor told Racing.com.

“For them to go above and beyond to do that, we were really appreciative of that, it took away that bit of anxiety that we weren’t going to get in.”

Moor and Currie have to complete three weeks hotel quarantine before they can embark on the job of settling into the Hong Kong riding ranks where they will both be looking to make the most of the great opportunity that has been presented to them.
