Ewe, Au back at winner's circle

Ewe, Au back at winner's circle

Jockeys Mark Ewe and Marcus Au bounced back to the winner's enclosure last Friday night, after two years.

Ewe, who resumed riding on Voy last Sunday after serving a one-year disqualification, steered the Alwin Tan-trained $99 outsider AFROJACK to victory in Race 4.

It was only his third ride back, having had only one other mount, Southern General in Race 3 last Friday night.

Although New Zealand-bred Afrojack came from Australia with two wins from six starts, the five-year-old was unplaced in all his 16 starts at Kranji before last Friday night's win.


A three-time top apprentice, Ewe's last success was on Special Account on April 29, 2012. He had 10 winners that year.

"I honestly didn't think my first win back would come so soon," said Ewe.

"I was really down after I was disqualified for one year. For the first couple of months, I went back to Penang to help my uncle with his fishing business, just to get my mind off racing.

"But I always wanted to come back and I could only hope the Singapore Turf Club would give me another chance. I would like to thank them for trusting me again."
