BOSS TO RIDE MELBOURNE CUP FAVOURITE

Top News South Wales hoop Glen Boss is set to ride current Melbourne Cup favourite and Queensland Import, Incentivise in the 2021 edition of the world’s richest 3200m race after beating off other top contenders

Glen Boss set to ride Melbourne Cup favourite

The ownership group for Incentivise confirmed that Boss had in fact won out on a three way battle for the ride on the first Tuesday of November.

Boss, a three time Melbourne Cup winning jockey will team up with Peter Moody in an attempt to win the race that stops the nation. Incentivise currently sits an $11 shot for the title as well as a $7 shot to win the Caulfield Cup.

Incentivise’s part owner Steve Tregea confirmed the news on Wednesday that Boss would be taking the ride and that other jockeys in contention had included Craig Williams and the latest winner of the Scobie Breasley medal, Jamie Kah.

“There were some other names in the mix and there was some debate and we took a while to decide but Glen (Boss) has got the nod,” Tregea confirmed.

“I have just got off the phone with him and we are all very excited.”

The news came very quickly on the back of Boss arriving in Melbourne to begin two week quarantine in order to compete for Spring riches in time.

Incentivise however has only catapulted to the top of agendas after destroying fields in Queensland, one of which included the Group 3 Tattersall's Cup.

So impressive were Incentivise’s wins it garnered the attention of prominent Victorian owners Brae Sokolski and Ozzie Kheir who bought a 50% share in the horse and relocated him to Victoria and the Peter Moody Stables.
