Jay Ford and James Innes were replaced on their rides so possibly one of those two.

Another jockey gets suspended. Weird the apprentices get big suspensions while the big name trainers like Carmody and Thompson get fines.  :chin:

Trainers have staff who would be collateral damage they would be unemployed  if the trainers were suspended or disqualified that would be the obvious reason for different penalties imo.....Chris Munce was fined $5K for allegedly giving false and misleading evidence ...jockeys were  outed for that offence ..a stablehand was disqualified for 4 months for a breach of the same rule....different penalties for the same offence.

REALIST SAM TO START ALL OVER AGAIN

TRENTON AKERS

TOP Kiwi rider Samantha Collett was at the pointy end of the food chain in her homeland but she is under no illusions as to the challenges that await her in Queensland as she prepares to call the Sunshine State home.

Collett is currently in hotel quarantine on the Gold Coast and is planning on having her first day in the saddle as a fully fledged Queenslander on Melbourne Cup day in less than two weeks time.

The premiership-winning Collett brings with her a wealth of experience but said she would work her way up from the bottom as she tried to cash in on Australia’s phenomenal prizemoney.

“I don’t expect to just slot into the leading ranks, I am a realist,” she said. “I would eventually like to be a more senior rider in town.

“I have been a freelance rider my whole career and that has worked well for me because you can make yourself available to anybody.

“Being a lightweight rider at home, I have had more opportunities by not attaching myself to one stable.”

Collett, 31, got her first experience of Queensland during the winter carnival when she travelled over with two Group 1 Kiwi horses.

She decided to make the move permanent several months later.

Living on a farm back home, Queensland’s laid-back lifestyle stood out to Collett who said city living had never excited her.

Collett will be managed by Cameron Partington, who also has Jim Byrne, Mark Du Plessis and Michael Rodd under his watch.

“It is a new challenge. I feel like I have achieved what I set out to achieve at home,” Collett said.

“I had a bit of a working holiday during the winter and I felt like it was a lifestyle I could adapt to – I have my farm back home so living in town hasn’t always been my thing.

“Obviously with that comes a large mortgage so making more money would help.”

Having had her first two flights to Australia cancelled, Collett’s move to Queensland has been somewhat of a labour of love so her time in quarantine has been spent attempting to learn the form to ensure no stone is left unturned.

Even though the prospect of quarantine-free travel is on the horizon in Australia, Collett said it wasn’t worth waiting around to see what would happen.

“I made such an effort to change my whole life to come over here so, whether I had to quarantine or not, I wanted to get over here as soon as I could,” she said.

“I have been doing lots of form, spending a bit of time to familiarise myself with names and horses before I get out.”

Collett is expected to exit hotel quarantine late next week ahead of her return to race riding.
ENDS

Cameron Partington must be busy trying to maitain the peace between jockeys and trainers seeing he heads up the Trainers Union and has a stable of top jockeys to manage .

If Ben Dories is looking for an interesting interview subject Cameron would be the man to choose

Remember when Bob Bentley tried to stop jockey manager Trevor Lansky having too many jocks on his list Trevor got licensed in NSW .....he's no longer in this occupation

Here is an interesting look at the most number of G1 wins by a jockey.

If Oliver keeps riding for next few years, he will be mighty hard to beat for a long time.

The only jocks that could beat him would be Hugh Bowman and J Mac. However Hughie seems to be struggling to get all the hot rides he used to get while JMac needs to keep it up for the next 10-15 years to beat Ollie if Ollie rides for next 5 years.

Allen stays on winner
‘Payback’ for Incentivise loss

TRENTON AKERS

ANTHONY Allen may have been thrown off winning machine Incentivise when he made the trip south to Peter Moody but Steve Tregea says there was no chance he was losing the ride on his top mare Eloquently at Doomben this weekend.

Winning her last six starts, Eloquently has become a cash machine for Tregea, notching up more than $300,000 in prizemoney thanks to the lucrative QTIS scheme and he says she is back in top order after a three-month break from racing.

While Allen has elected to ride at the Gold Coast in recent weeks with more opportunities, Tregea confirmed he would make the trip back to town to connect with the mare as they look to make it seven on the bounce.

“Anthony is on her again, there’s no way I was getting him off, this is his payback for missing out on Incentivise,” Tregea laughed.

“He has won four on her or something so I’m not throwing him off. He came up to ride some of mine in the trials so when they get the seat on them, they don’t like giving them up.”

A set of blinkers is all it took to develop Eloquently from a provinciallevel sprinter into a potential top-liner and her blistering trial at Toowoomba suggests she is on track again this preparation.

“She is going well, she won a trial here the other day and was about six (lengths) in front, I think she is going real well,” Tregea said.

“I’m not smart enough to know (how good she is). I wouldn’t have thought she’s absolute top class but she has a ticker and she keeps on winning.”

Saturday will also see the return of Tregea’s Group 2 winner Niccanova, in the Listed Keith Noud (1200m) to kick off his summer campaign.

While his best form is at Eagle Farm, Tregea says Niccanova will appreciate what will likely be a rain-soaked Doomben track under jockey Jimmy Orman.

“It is the only race he can go in really, he will carry 61kg unless they scale it down,” Tregea said.

“He is an old boy but he does love the wet. He won the Victory Stakes – Group 2 – at Eagle Farm a few starts back, he loves it there too.

“He’s not so good at Doomben, he has won there but just he needs luck.”

Boss retiring after Saturday’s Caulfield meeting. Wonder what would happened if he managed to come to Victoria and rode Incentivise? Life sure can hinge on a couple of breaks.

Bayliss will finally get to taste refreshing Singapore sling



Jake Bayliss.

TRENTON AKERS

QUEENSLAND jockey Jake Bayliss will fulfil a lifelong dream and make the move to Asia to ride after being granted a 12- month licence by the Singapore Turf Club.

And he will be joined by fellow Queensland rider Ronnie Stewart.



Bayliss, who has been managing his late grandfather’s farm, will move to the Asian racing hub early next year as he looks to establish himself overseas.

While Singapore racing has been in the headlines more for its departures rather than its arrivals of late, Bayliss and Stewart will bolster the expatriate riding ranks in the new season.

“It has been a long-term dream and goal,” Bayliss said.

“I have had to look after the farm after the passing of my grandfather for a while but the time is right now so I am very overwhelmed about it all. It has always been a dream of mine to ride internationally. We were only kids when my father was a trackwork rider for Mick Kent over there so we were back and forth when I was young.

“I went to apply for Singapore two years ago when I came back from New Zealand.

“I was living on the family farm near Ipswich and I wrote up my resume and everything was looking good but then my grandfather got really crook. He was unable to run the farm and my grandmother asked if I could stall Singapore – she knew how much it meant to me – but I was happy to put family first because the farm was a big job – it’s 1000 acres with hundreds of head of cattle.

“My cousin and I were the only capable ones to look after the farm so I stayed put in Queensland and balanced riding and that.”

A three-time Group 1 winner in New Zealand, Bayliss has been on the rise in Queensland and has 11 wins so far this season.

With the family farm slowly winding down, Bayliss said he wanted to jump at the opportunity while he was still a young rider.

Bayliss will ride Intrepidacious for former Singaporebased trainer Lee Freedman in the Listed Eureka Stud Classic at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

ENDS

Ronnie Stewart has had success in Singapore and will do well again he's a very good rider IMO

Popular young jockey Chris Caserta has drowned after a late night swim at a Surfers Paradise beach on Wednesday night.

Water police located the body of jockey Chris Caserta on Thursday morning about 150 metres off shore, but have been unable to retrieve it due to surf conditions.

“They have found him about 150m off Surfers Paradise beach. He was due to be at training this morning,” a friend of Chris’ told Gold Coast Bulletin.

Caserta had entered the water with a trackwork rider just after 10pm.

Passers-by spotted the pair struggling in the surf and were able to help the woman to shore, but were unable to bring Caserta back to the beach.

“They got in a rip. She tried to get him out. But she lost contact with him,” the friend said.
