Jockeys Weigh In on Upcoming Star Thoroughbreds
With the autumn thoroughbred racing season getting underway, it is time to have a look at which horses have good prospects for glory in the higher levels of racing, so who better to ask than the riders?
Hugh Bowman is touting From Within. He thinks she is a top contender and her disappointing result in the Magic Millions was solely his tactical mistake in picking the wrong spot on the track.
Kerrin McEvoy weighed in with his opinion that Pariah is one to watch. He had the opportunity to do the steering for Pariah’s debut win because scheduled jockey Blake Shinn could not make weight.
Star Turn, who had good running the spring past, is a horse with which to be reckoned, according to his rider, Tommy Berry. Berry feels that Star Turn is even stronger than he was last spring, so he should match up well against a good crop of three-year-old sprinters.
Even though Chauffer did not get the job done in the Magic Millions, he did give Josh Parr a ride that convinced Parr that the youngster will thrive in slightly longer races, such as the Sires’ Produce and the Champagne Stakes at Randwick, with an extra 300 and 600 metres aiding Chauffer’s cause.
