Mark Newnham hopes Hong Kong connections can help him hit the ground running at Sha Tin

Hong Kong owners have been crucial to Mark Newnham’s success in Australia and the trainer hopes the bonds he has built during the first seven years of his career will help him succeed when he makes the move to Sha Tin.

Sydney-based Newnham, who has this term’s best city win rate among Australia’s top 30 handlers, will become the latest addition to the Hong Kong training ranks next season after the Jockey Club unveiled him at Sha Tin on Friday morning.

“A lot of Hong Kong owners have become friends. On my trips here, I’ve met a lot of their friends who are owners with the Jockey Club,” said Newnham, adding that he intends to wind up his Sydney stable over the next couple of months before moving to Hong Kong in May.

“I’m expecting there’ll be lots of lunches and lots of dinners. Hopefully, those lunches and dinners turn into owners for horses in my stable.”
