VIDEO: Oisin Murphy lands Japan Cup gold with Suave Richard
on 24 November 2019
Murphy won the Group 1 feature in Tokyo on the Yasushi Shono-trained five-year-old son of Heart's Cry

CHAMPION jockey Oisin Murphy added another notable victory to his CV as he claimed the Group 1 Japan Cup aboard Suave Richard.

Murphy has enjoyed a landmark year, being crowned top jockey for the first time, and he teamed up with the Yasushi Shono-trained five-year-old in the 12-furlong Tokyo feature.

Suave Richard was sitting in third at the top of the straight, but switched to the rail by Murphy, the son of Heart's Cry found an extra burst to grab the lead.

Murphy’s mount went on to win by three-quarters of a length with Curren Bouquetd’or second and Wagnerian third.

Frankie Dettori, William Buick and Ryan Moore also had rides in the race, but they all finished down the field.
