Buick draws blank in MauritiusHeadlines
William Buick

William Buick was out of luck as the only British rider competing in this year's international jockeys' weekend in Mauritius.

He was part of an impressive Rest of the World team including Christophe Soumillon and Mickael Barzalona, but the star outfit had to settle for last place.

Soumillon lifted a local Group Two event on Saturday but Buick, who was the individual champion last year, never got the opportunity to shine.

He said: "This is my fourth year here. It's been great. Last year was great, because I finally rode a winner. Before that I had come out twice without riding a winner, but then last year I rode three.

"It's fantastic, I enjoy the camaraderie. I'm the only English guy here this year, but I get on well with the French and Mickael (Barzalona) is a good friend of mine - we live next door to each other.

"This is quite an important meeting in the sense that we all work together back home and it's all business, but here you can come and relax together a bit. We have the team thing going and it's a very healthy competition. And it helps you to stay fit, too, after all it's pretty hot out here!"

He added: "I had better horses last year. But it was still a lot of fun and hopefully I can win another race next time."

Barzalona said: "Naturally you always want to ride a winner as the public here are so enthusiastic and really want you to win, but it didn't happen this year for me."

The team prize went to the Southern Hemisphere trio, which included Hugh Bowman, a familiar face in Britain following a spell with Mick Channon.
