Call it a cocktail of bravery, persistent, talent and resilience when you talk about jockey Chris Johnson and what he achieved on a racetrack today.
The perennial winner rode SASSENACH to victory at Awapuni….and in doing so that became his 2452 winner.
It also put him in front as the rider of more winners on New Zealand soil than anyone before – in history.
In some quarters Johnson is considered NZ racing’s The Magic Man.
Today he cast a spell over all hoops in a way that may take a long time to better.
