Oisin Murphy Lands Five Timer In Japan

Leading Irish flat jockey Oisin Murphy saw his most successful season last year in Britain where he landed multiple Group 1 successes and his most wins in a season.

The rider hasn't stopped there and in the off season has been working on adding to his ever growing reputation and he has done this by landing a five timer from nine possible rides in Tokyo on Sunday.

The young rider is now the leading jockey in the Japan Racing Association Standings for 2019 and after these wins on the weekend, he now sits five clear from the second placed Yuga Kuwada and Yasunari Iwata, with 17 wins in total.

Sunday saw the end of Murphy's spell in Japan as his one month license to ride over there has expired. He went out with a bang landing the spoils in the feature contest of the day in the Grade 3 Negishi Stakes on Copano Kicking.

The Irishman has had an unforgettable season that see's him in the form of his life and was recognised for this when picking up the 2018's Flat Jockey of the Year in December.

He is one of the most talented riders on the flat racing roster and he is only getting better with more and more better rides getting handed to him.

(Credit Racing Post) After winning the Grade 3 race in Japan on Sunday he said: "He travelled very well and I felt he won quite easily. I hope this horse is still improving and I'm delighted to get my first Group winner in Japan.

"I have been very lucky [in Japan]. I want to say thanks to the JRA and everybody who has made this possible. Japan is the pinnacle of horseracing in the world, so to be a part of it is fantastic."

Murphy will now travel back over to England to get ready for the start of the season but he could be back in all weather action as soon as Friday with three good rides scheduled for the Irishman at Lingfield.
