Murphy has a big day out at Sandown

6 May 2007
By Mark Ryan   aapracing

Victoria's leading apprentice Sebastian Murphy had his best day at the races at Sandown with a winning quartet, reducing his 2kg allowance to 1.5kg in the process.

Murphy's day started well when he won the first flat race on promising Tommy Hughes-trained filly Class Prevails ($2.90 fav) in the Shoobra Hcp (1200m).

Two races later he led all the way to score on the Mick Price-trained mare Testabel ($3.50 fav) in the Our Faith Hcp (1600m) and in the following race gave Hughes a winning double aboard Volcanic Star ($5) in the Katandra Hcp (2100m).

He brought up his fourth winner on his seventh ride, Caridale ($26), for Spreyton trainer Mark Ganderton in the Sir Dane Hcp (1500m).

"I must admit I thought he was my worst chance," said Murphy who is apprenticed to Ballarat trainer Darren Weir and rode six winners for the weekend after a double at Moonee Valley.

"I've had a couple of trebles in the country, but this is the first time I've ridden four winners anywhere."

Murphy is the son of jockey Garry Murphy who was also riding at the Sandown meeting but with much less luck.

Murphy senior rode Mon Allez into second place behind Volcanic Star but was suspended for shifting in near the 200m when not sufficiently clear of Our Mohave who almost fell.

Garry Murphy was outed for 19 meetings and will return to riding on May 26.

His 17-year-old son has now ridden 41 city winners, 35 of them this year.

Murphy rode at 52.5kg but said he could ride lighter but had just returned a week ago from a careless riding suspension.

Star Jockey Murphy Rising

Sebastian Murphy has enjoyed a stellar seasonBallarat apprentice jockey Sebastian Murphy will cap off a sensational racing season on Friday when he is crowned the Rising Stars Series champion.

With one leg to race, Murphy has an unassailable lead in the series. The 17-year-old has accrued 68 points throughout the season, which includes four wins, and leads from Nicholas Hall by 13 points.

Murphy has won legs at Terang, Warrnambool, Ballarat and Bendigo. Separate from the series, he also won the Terry O’Brien Apprentice’s Cup aboard Ratesta at Kilmore on Tuesday.

On Friday Murphy, who is apprenticed to Darren Weir, rides the Danny O’Brien-trained Amatila in the Rising Stars Final at Werribee. This season Murphy has ridden 113 winners in Victoria, including 48 winners at metropolitan meetings. Overall his career record is 174 winners, with 54 at metropolitan meetings.

Born on New Year’s Day, Murphy is absorbed by racing. He thrives on being around the stable and at the track. Son of senior jockey Garry, Murphy firstly wants to outride his apprentice claim before cementing his place among the established riders in Victoria.

As winner of the Rising Star Series, where jockeys are allocated points 12-6-4-2-1 from first to fifth in each leg, Murphy has won a 26 inch Conia LCD TV. The apprentices that finish in second and third receive a 22 inch Conia LCD TV and 19 inch LG LCD TV respectively.

Bundy
He rode in trials at Ararat on Monday after suffering from mental and physical exhaustion in August.  He's had a few problems with a bad back (bulging disk) which has prevented him from jogging and his weight has risen to 60k.  Hard to believe  this has happened coming off a win in the Stradbroke (Mr Baritone) in June, and finishing second to Craig Williams in the jockeys' premiership.  Hope he gets back real soon.

Hoss just spoke about Seb on Racing Retro (Sunday 15/3/09). Apparently Seb is still suffering from a troublesome back condition. He is riding track-work but is not well enough to ride in races.

Friday, 16 October 2009: Most eyes and the major players will be focused on Caulfield tomorrow for Cup day but popular rider Sebastian Murphy makes a low-key return to racing at Bendigo.

The former top apprentice, who has sat on the sidelines for over 12 months due to a back injury and fatigue, makes his return as a senior tomorrow at the provincials where he has one ride – Pablo's Pick in race seven.

He also has a couple of Horsham on Sunday.

Murphy had a stellar season as an apprentice last year finishing runner-up in the Scobie Breasley medal and winning his first Group 1 race on Mr Baritone in the Stradbroke Handicap before taking a break last August.

Thanks OL. I thought it may have been his first come-back ride. He is a real talent IMO.

Murphy is ready, willing but still waiting
BY TIM O'CONNOR
14/10/2009 11:16:00 PM
BALLARAT jockey Sebastian Murphy will make his long-awaited return to the saddle this weekend.
A former leading Victorian apprentice, Murphy will step out for his first race ride since August 17 last year, which is likely to be at Sunday's Horsham meeting.

But the 19-year-old could return as early as Saturday if a ride comes his way.

"At the moment I don't (have any rides). It doesn't look like there is going to be much for me there (at Bendigo)," Murphy said.

"That'd be all right (to resume at Bendigo), (but) it's not the end of the world if there's nothing there."

The 19-year-old has been away from official race duties for the past 14 months, citing exhaustion and a bulging disc in his back for the lengthy lay-off. The injury was triggered by a race fall on a horse called Grease Monkey,

and then the chilly Ballarat winter proved a barrier to weight loss.

But about three months after beginning full training, Murphy, a two-time leading Melbourne metropolitan apprentice, has his weight down from a high of 67kg and will resume riding at 58kg this weekend.

"I had a few setbacks with my back; that sort of took a bit longer than what it would have taken," he said.

"That's come good now, it's not worrying me at all.

"I've struggled with my weight all the way through, but previously I was able to manage it."

Murphy said the time away from racing couldn't have come at a worse time, with the youngster piloting Michael Moroney-trained Mr Baritone to his maiden group one victory in the 2008 Stradbroke Handicap, and with a number of promising spring carnival rides in the pipeline.

Murphy said he had been doing track work, mainly for Ballarat trainers Darren Weir and Damien Hunter, since November last year, but was not sure whether he would get down to his previous riding weight of 53kg.

Murphy has been booked to ride one horse on Sunday and a further two at Monday's Warrnambool meeting.

Great riding on fav Redwood Park at Pakenham, started to join in at the 300 before ducking in, quick think saw Seb switch the whip from the right hand to left, straighten the horse and get up on the line.   emthup
A lesser hoop would have run 3rd

Comeback momentum on hold after suspension
Brad Waters
Monday, 9 November 2009


Former top apprentice Sebastian Murphy has had his comeback to the saddle stalled by stewards at Sunday’s Ararat meeting.

Murphy has made a strong return to riding after having six months off due to a back injury by riding 14 winners from just 43 mounts in the past three weeks to have a strike rate of more than 32 percent.

Murphy was suspended after pleading guilty to a careless riding charge aboard Double Hopped in the Ararat RSL Maiden Plate (1600m).

The talented rider was suspended for 10 meetings with the ban to begin after Murphy fulfils his bookings at Colac on Monday.

Murphy will return to the saddle on November 18.

Where is Seb? He returned from suspension on 18/11 then rode for 3 days, and I haven't see him since? I hope he isn't injured.  :what:

Stewards stall Murphy comeback
Brad Waters  Monday, 14 December 2009

Comeback jockey Sebastian Murphy was suspended for 11 meetings on a careless riding charge at Moonee Valley on Sunday.

Murphy was charged after he allowed his mount Jerrymac to cross sharply in front of the field soon after the start of the Cathay Pacific Handicap (1200m).

Stewards alleged Jerrymac’s shift caused Romanoff Limits and Aflashycat to be hampered.

The stewards panel took into account Murphy’s guilty plea and his efforts his error immediately but were also forced to consider the fact Murphy had been suspended twice since returning to riding after a debilitating back injury in October.

Murphy’s offence was assessed as being in the medium range and the jockey was subsequently suspended from midnight on December 14 to return to riding on Boxing Day.
