Via Singapore Turf Club Press Release
The Singapore Turf Club has granted a one-month visiting jockey’s licence to Australian jockey Patrick Moloney effective from 29 July to 31 August 2019.
Currently licensed by Racing Victoria, Moloney, 25, began his apprenticeship with his father, trainer Gerard Moloney at Caulfield in 2012.
Twice crowned champion country apprentice jockey in Victoria in 2015/16 and 2016/2017, Moloney also claimed the metropolitan title in the latter season. He has gone on to ride around 420 winners, mainly in Victoria for a variety of trainers, combining the most often with uncle John Moloney and Michael Moroney.
From his haul of 10 Group and Listed winners, the career highlights are the 2015 Alister Clarke Stakes with Chill Party (his first Group success), the 2017 Queen Elizabeth Stakes with Vengeur Masque and the 2017 Linlithgow Stakes with Rich Charm, all Group 2 races.
Despite his young age, Moloney has already ridden overseas – in France where he was invited to represent Australia in the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars races at Chantilly in 2013, and New Zealand, mainly for Moroney at his Matamata training base.
Among his other notable achievements, Moloney also won the Gilbert Principles of Sport Science Award Racing Victoria in 2015/16. He has also ridden in major Australian Group 1 races like the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup and Doncaster Handicap, albeit without winning.
Moloney goes to scale at 51.5 kgs.
