NAME: Allan Chau
BORN: Hong Kong
NOW LIVES: Port Macquarie
Allan is a jockey at Port Macquarie in New South Wales. He was born in Hong Kong and moved to Brisbane with his family as a boy. The family business was hospitality, but it’s always been Allan’s desire to be jockey. He’s had 130 wins in his career so far, and it is his big dream to one day win the prestigious Melbourne Cup.
Allan spends his free time swimming, surfing and playing footy on the clean beaches. He loves Port Macquarie, saying that in the country everyone is friendly and not so worried about money. “Even the koalas are slow and casual like everyone around here”.
