- World-class rider signed up for Rest of the World team
- Popular event on ITV’s main channel for first time
Ascot have pulled off a coup with the official confirmation that João Moreira, one of the world’s greatest jockeys and hugely popular with racefans in Hong Kong, will ride at the Berkshire track next month in the Shergar Cup.
The chance to see an authentic international world-class rider like Moreira is what makes the Shergar Cup, a jockeys’ team competition which got off to a bumpy start at the turn of the Millennium but is now regularly attracting 30,000 to Ascot, more than just a family day out.
