Hong Kong: Oughton enjoys first four-timer.
Oughton has run up a number of trebles in the past but this was his first fourfold.
He said: "I will remember this for a very long time."
All four were ridden by Douglas Whyte, who cemented his position at the top of the jockeys' standings. Whyte has now ridden 13 winners this campaign and has laid a solid foundation for his assault on the title.
Indian Road (7-1) was the pick of the Oughton quartet, and the trainer paid tribute to former jockey, and now Hong Kong starter, Philip Waldron.
Oughton said: "Indian Road has undeniable ability, but his gate manners were very bad and he is also a bleeder.
``Philip worked with him many an afternoon and has done more than anyone to get him right. I am very grateful to him."
Oughton's other winners were Big Mac (5-1), rapidly improving stayer Magic Hands (6-1) and Espresso (12-1).
