After the Jockey Club announced a change in licensing standards on Tuesday, the size will be Position As long as the rules allow, he has every intention to train in the city.
“I’ve been here for 20 years and I don’t feel that way,” said Size. “As we know, time is the governor of everything, but as long as I can contribute by playing the Jockey Club, I will try my best to do it.
“The idea is to continue. I will do my best and continue as long as the situation allows. I am fine now and will continue to do so.”
The size must maintain the high standards he set in the 20-year competition in Hong Kong in order to continue.

Size admitted that he had talked to the Jockey Club before the announcement, but doesn’t think the status quo has changed just to allow him to continue.
“There was a warning that the rules might change a bit,” said Size. “It was just a general argument, but they seem to have put some energy into it, and this is what they came up with.
“I don’t know if they changed the rules for me. There’s a lot going on, like obedience racing regularly, so I need a dual site trainer and a quality person I like them working. At this point, in today’s situation, it looks like a logical thing. “
Size is on the hind legs of his quest to win the 12th Trainers Championship this season, winning six of his former assistant Frankie Lore Fuchuen in just three meetings.
