I like him on in big races.

Midweeks.....that's an entirely different kettle of fish.

Just a gut feel, someone will probably blow me out of the water with stats.

Stats say he has been a very good betting proposition in group ones for yonks. Ordinary races.....he is ordinary.

ROI is the best indicator, Bundy. I'm tipping he's not performing outside those big money races.

Group one is his best for ROI, by a clear margin. Overall his figures are quite respectable, really

Tuesday, 29 December 2009: Top rider Glen Boss has a strong book of mounts on Friday's New Year's Day meeting at Flemington.
 
Boss will ride the progressive sprinter Beltrois  in the Group 3 Standish Handicap (1200m) up the straight while in the other feature, the Listed Bagot Handicap (2800m) for stayers, he has the mount on Grand Destiny .

Boss rode Beltrois for trainer Robbie Griffiths last start at Flemington where he was an impressive winner and will stick with the lightly-raced four-year-old for his toughest career test on Friday.

Grand Destiny, prepared by Mick Kent, was also ridden by Boss to success when a second-up winner over 2000m at Flemington.

The gelding is a winner to 2500m and at his only try at Friday's track and distance, during the winter, he ran on strongly to finish fifth.

Boss will also ride the in-form stablemate Sadalbari , who tackles 2000m for the first time.

The lightly-raced four-year-old backs up after winning the Listed Lord Stakes at Caulfield over 1700m on Boxing Day.

Just absolutely butchered Linton.

Fair dinkum on such a massive track like Flemington to see so much scrimmaging is disgraceful.

He had so much horse under him, he should have been looking to get out well before the turn.

Funny but you often find horses getting blocked on big tracks, the reason is that it is hard to push others out of the way once you are in the straight, good jockeys often use centrifical forces to get out rounding the turn on turning tracks horses outside you cannot hold you in there but because tracks like Flemington have such a long straight they wait until well in the straight before trying to get out, then they have to rely on luck (or knock something down) which often doesn't come, you will find horses often get blocked in straight races at Flemington when you don't expect it.

Boss back in Sydney town from Saturday week
Clinton Payne  Thursday, 3 March 2011 
Champion big race rider Glen Boss will be back in Sydney for the autumn carnival from Saturday week.

The three time Melbourne Cup winning rider will return for Randwick Guineas day at Warwick Farm where he will partner the Mike Moroney-trained Absolutelyawesome, who is an unlikely starter in Saturday’s Australian Guineas at Flemington after being made the fourth emergency.

Following Randwick Guineas day, Boss will ride at the six major Saturday meetings during the Sydney Carnival at Rosehill and Randwick.

Trainers wishing to secure the services of Boss can contact his manager Reece Murphy on 0425 855 585

No wonder he wants to stick with Absolutelyawesome ran a very unlucky 4th today. :thumbsup:

The head on shot shows  had he taken the run on the inside instead of trying to get through between runners he might even have won. :whistle:

Not one of his better rides IMO :thumbsd:

Bossy might be a bit like Northerly.   :biggrin:

Bossy wanted an uninterrupted run and the horse in front of him was wandering around and Boss did not know which way to go, inside? outside? it was a huge run and if he could have had no interruptions may have won the race, it wasn't something I would blame the Jockey for though, it was a 50/50 decision, he goes inside and the horse in front goes back to the fence he gets stood on his head(Like Jimmy did on Parriwi) run of race stuff

On TVN Racing Review they showed Boss's comments after the race.

He was quite bitter and fuming - basically said if the race was run at Randwick instead of a music concert he would have won on ABSOLUTELYAWESOME

Richie Callander then proceeded to comment after the footage that Boss was dreaming - sheesh those TVN presenters can be arrogrant sometimes.

No doubt for anyone who actually watched the video that with some luck he would have gone pretty damm close to winning.

Huge run, that was 2nd up with improvement he will beat everything in that field next start.

What does his breeding suggest? Is he a derby candidate do you think?

Just confirming injuries...

Boss has fractured his left humerus and was scheduled for surgery at the Epworth Hospital on Friday afternoon.
"The plan is for him to have a plate or rod inserted," Murphy said.
"The doctor says the best-case scenario, if everything goes well, is that he will be back in two weeks.
"He has been very lucky indeed and we are hopeful of a good recovery."
