I find it very interesting that neither Heathcote, or Gollan put Browne on their horses  :chin:

I wonder if anyone has an explanation?

Egos at play?
Apart from Buffering you mean????

Can't recall him ever riding for Gollan, though.

He rides Buffering, and Privlaka for the same owners.

He was once Heathcotes love affair who had virtual pick of rides- and rightly so!

He did ride a few for Gollan, including the "cat" that went to HK.

I find it strange that neither want him riding their horses  :huh:

Brownie looked really awkward on them on Saturday. Hope his knee's are not giving him too much grief

I think that edit was well thought out, D-G.

I've never heard Heathcote have anything but praise for D Browne.  He's ridden Hopfgarten, too, has he not??

With the wins on Woorim, etc, surely he's RH's pin-up??  :shrug:

I guess Heathcote likes to spread his rides around, and has loyalties to the local track-riders. Again,  :shrug:

He doesn't ride track work for them, the most probable reason

Wasn't trying to start any rumours, I just find it interesting/strange that neither of the leading trainers put the best jockey on  :shrug:

For all I know, it may be Browne who doesn't want to ride for them  :shrug:
As I say, I find it strange

Meanwhile, Stuart Kendrick, continues his rise through the training ranks, in part due to his association with Browne

N.B. Kendrick is a very good conditioner of horses

D-G,

Maybe he, or his manager, only wants the 'cherry ripe' rides to a large degree.

It's one way of looking after one's strike rate and reputation.

Doesn't he have issues with his ailing body hence he doesn't want too many rides?
You would think if anything he is the one choosing which rides he takes. Such a gun.

He's on one in the 1st race tomorrow for Liam Birchley that they have hammered in early markets.

#9 Havasay

Opened up $20+ with most corporates.

Best price available tonight is $8.00 with UBET but a lot of them have it at $6.50.

Switch the rides and a different result I reckon mate.
He sat behind them and waited for a slow coach to drop in his lap unlike last start when he got out early, wound up and put 'em away with ease

All,

In case you missed it Damian has a 72% place strike rate from his last 50 rides accordig to Racing and Sports Saturday fields form guide.

This may well make him the world number 1 for those 50 rides.

Anton Marcus the South African jockey also has figures superior to the HK fellow typically referred to as number 1. Antons last 50 and 350 figures for the place are 48 and 53 compared to Moreira's 48 and 52.

Perhaps people would like to discuss how best to judge the worlds best jockey. Some suggst betting to prices returns BUT this introduces peoples betting behaviour bias.
