Premier Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman has made a winning start to his short-term contract in Japan.
Bowman steered Tosen Reve to win a 2000m-handicap at Kyoto racetrack on Saturday.
Tosen Reve is trained by Yasutoshi Ikee who visited Sydney earlier this year with Tosen Stardom who ran second in the Group One Ranvet Stakes.
Tosen Stardom was ridden by Tommy Berry who is also riding in Japan and had a winning double last weekend.
Bowman will have a European holiday after his Japanese contract ends and will not be seen in Sydney until the new year.
