Michael Clements celebrated his first trainer’s championship in Singapore in style at Kranji here today, the final of the 2020 racing season, with three winners.
Already assured of the premiership before the day’s proceedings, Clements nevertheless wrapped up the year with wins from STARLIGHT, IMPERIUM and KNIGHT LOVE.
STARLIGHT was a runaway winner in his debut while IMPERIUM was at his second win of the season, after scoring twice in 2018 but drawing a blank last year
American-bred KNIGHT LOVE won his second race in five starts in his maiden season.
That brought the Zimbabwean’s tally for the season to 61, 16 ahead of second-placed Mark Walker.
Vlad Duric failed to land a winner today but still notched his fourth consecutive title with 65 winners, three ahead of Ruan Maia who scored on KNIGHT LOVE today.
Simon Kok, who was also not on the score sheet today, is the top apprentice for the second consecutive season, winning 34 races.
