It hasn’t even been a week since Boss rode his last race in Australia when finishing fourth aboard Spanish Mission in the Group 2 Zipping Classic at Caulfield but the 63 year old has now announced a return to the saddle in 2022 when he will ride in Saudi Arabia.
The 90 time Group 1 winner will be heading to the middle east to take part of the Saudi Cup meeting in February. An invitational event that lasts over two days and Boss told RSN’s Racing Pulse he had accepted an offer to ride at the event.
"I got some information last night, I got an invitation actually and I think it's too good to pass up," Boss said.
"The Saudi Cup meeting - which is a $US20m meeting, they have a big meeting on the Friday and the Saturday - I've been invited over there to ride in their invitation meeting.
"There's seven women and seven men from all around (the world).
"You ride against Mike Smith, Frankie Dettori and the like and that's on the 25th of February (2022)."
Boss heads to Saudi in February on a similar path to that of fellow jockey’s Michael Walker and Jamie Kah have forged in the past when being invited to represent there country over a series of events.
"There's about eight races over the two days ... there's a points system as they usually are (with) these things," he said.
"The calibre of rider you're riding against, it's going to be incredible."
"I'm representing Australia, that's what it's about," Boss said.
"You don't get the opportunity now in our sport to do that very often.
Boss did confirm he will remain inactive in Australia from racing but did confirm he will remain in training in preparation for February.
