Gretzky the Great winning the 2020 ‘Win and You’re In’ Summer Stakes at Woodbine under Kazushi Kimura

The Eclipse Award-winning Champion Apprentice Jockey of 2019, Kazushi Kimura has plans to ride in Saudi Arabia during the winter of 2020-2021, reports the Thoroughbred Daily News. A 21-year-old native of Japan, Kimura will primarily ride for Prince Sultan bin Mishal bin Abdulaziz.

Kimura finished third in the standings at Woodbine this year with 83 winners, and celebrated his first Grade 1 victory with Gretzky the Great in the Summer Stakes. He has ridden just two starters thus far in Saudi Arabia, finishing unplaced in both, but has more mounts in the coming weeks.

“I’ve been getting good experience [in Saudi Arabia] so far,” Kimura told the TDN. “I’m gonna ride in Saudi Arabia until the middle of March, then I will be back to Woodbine before the opening day.”
