Kerrin McEvoy has been named as the new rider of enigmatic Hong Kong galloper Pakistan Star in Sunday's Gr1 QEII Cup (2000m) at Sha Tin, reports the South China Morning Post. McEvoy replaces British-based Brazilian jockey Silvestre de Sousa who informed connections he could not make the trip on Wednesday. "It was disappointing that Silvestre couldn't come but we are excited to get a top jockey like Kerrin," trainer Tony Cruz said. "He is the type of jockey that isn't going to be overawed by an occasion. He has never ridden for me before but I know he was number two jockey for Godolphin and he has ridden plenty of Group One winners, so that's good enough for me." The richly talented Pakistan Star has acquired cult status in Hong Kong due his unpredictability and history of suddenly pulling up in trackwork, trials and, worst of all, races. Reply
