Craig Williams had a fair day out yesterday at the Farm riding 4 winners.

He would have to be the most professional Jockey going around and deserves the success he gets.  emthup

If he was "so professional", surely he would be managed by Gallopers.

Must admit, he goes OK though, especially when I have backed something to beat him  :baby:

Jockey Craig Williams hopes the rain stays away from Eagle Farm this week in anticipation of partnering three-year-old filly Ortensia in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).
Winning the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) to secure a berth into the Stradbroke field, Ortensia appeared to struggle in the slow going.

"I love to see her on top of the ground, I believe she's three lengths better horse than what we saw on Saturday," Williams told Sport 927 this morning.

"I worked her during the week (last Wednesday morning at Doomben) and her work was excellent apart from the soft ground she had to contend with."

Showers are expected in Brisbane for the next three days until Friday when the Bureau of Meteorology predict sunshine for the remainder of the week. 

Williams also reflected on the drama of the past week which came to a climax yesterday morning when Queensland stewards ordered the leading Melbourne hoop ride Ortensia instead of All Silent in this weekend's Stradbroke.

"I've always stated that I liked to be on Ortensia wherever she runs and that's going to be the case on Saturday," Williams said.

"I picked out Ortensia a long time ago but when she wasn't in the field last week I made a commitment to Mr. Begg because she wasn't in the field."

"I went with my head and not with my heart and as it turns out she's now in the field and I'm riding her," Williams added.

All Silent and Black Piranha share favouritism with Betstar at $5.50 with Ortensia on the next line of betting, rated a $6.50 chance.

Williams will also ride Kiwi galloper Izonit in the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) and Choistar in the Group 1 T.J Smith Plate (1600m) this Saturday.

Williams squares ledger in premiership race
Brad Waters
Wednesday, 8 July 2009


Top jockey Craig Williams drew level in the Melbourne jockeys’ premiership in emphatic fashion aboard Tan Tat Brav at Wednesday’s VRC meeting at Bendigo.

Williams endured a frustrating day last Saturday at Flemington but Tan Tat Brav produced an impressive display of speed to lead easily before accelerating brilliantly to put six lengths in his rivals from the 250 metres.

Despite Williams easing down the son of Falbrav over the last 50 metres, Tan Tat Brav held a seven-length margin over Schrapnel Gully and Finessed on the post.

That'd have to be a load of crap.
What kind of car these days can you lock and leave it running?

Craig Williams had a day out at Flemington riding 6 winners leaving the crumbs in the other 3 races for his fellow competitors...a terrific effort seldom achieved one of his best days if not the best ever.  :king:

it was quite ridiculous - especially seeing most of the winners were around the $8 mark!

No - didn't back ANY of them.

Turf, 6 was the magic number. I had a rare day out and found 6 of the winners as well :bop:

Mind you 3 we’re very obvious and 3 or the 6 didn’t have Williams on board

Williams honours dying man

 
Kate Watts@katewatts_
2 May, 2021

The story of Nigel Latham has gone all around the world, after Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Craig Williams paid tribute to the dying lover of racing whose final wish was to spend one more day trackside at the races.

Nigel’s wish was granted at Morphettville on Saturday for the first day of the Adelaide Carnival, with the racing enthusiast’s hospital bed wheeled out to the 200m right on the fence so he could for perhaps the last time be close to the horses as they roared down the straight.

It had been a victorious day for Williams at the track, scoring a treble and taking out one of the features the Group 1 Sangster Stakes on Instant Celebrity.

But when the leading jockey was interviewed for the final time after his third win on the program aboard Lady Dunmore in the last, all he wanted to do was honour Nigel and make sure viewers at home, trackside and ultimately all around the world knew about his final wish.

"He's only got days to live... His last dying wish was to come to the races." ❤

“Nigel Latham he was the inspiration for her success today,” Williams said.

“Nigel’s here (on course) unfortunately he only has days to live. He’s come here with the ambulance people at the 200m mark all day, his last dying wish was to come to the races.

“So to Nigel Latham, I said to my horse if she’d get over the line we’d make sure we give him the winning goggles and she did her job really well.

“It was his inspiration we’d like to be grateful to people like Nigel who support the industry and have his last dying wish coming here today for a great raceday.”

Williams bringing Nigel's story to light received world-wide recognition overseas including from english broadcaster Francesca Cumani.

Closer to home local South Australian ambulance employees were thankful their work to go above and beyond for their patients was acknowledged through Nigel's heartfelt experience.
