Debut Winner for Daniels

Deryl Daniels landed a winner on his first day’s racing at Busan Race Park this afternoon.  The South African jockey guided four year old Nagase to victory in race 5.

The 31 year old Daniels had earlier scored a third place finish in race 3 on 79.2 outsider High Honor.  On Nagase, Daniels kept the 3.7 second favourite well placed as they turned and hit the front in the final furlong, running on for a half length win.

The win means that Daniels has matched Danny Craven and Chris Taylor who also scored winners on their debuts.
