New Zealand’s Lisa Allpress has received a temporary jockey license, the Japan Racing Association announced Wednesday.

The 41-year-old Allpress, who competed here in 2002 and again last year, has won 10 of the 200 Japan races. In the 2015-2016 season, she led New Zealand with 171 wins.

Allpress, whose short bio on New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing’s web site calls Tokyo Racecourse the greatest place she’s ever visited, is licensed to ride from Sept. 10 to Oct. 23.
