PIKE BEGINS NSW RIDING CAREER

Jockey William Pike has begun his New South Wales racing career after transitioning from Western Australia to continue his riding career. It wasn’t quite the fanfare that was expected however with Pike having just two rides in the bush

William Pike starts NSW Career in regional Wyong

The Western Australian made his New South Wales riding debut this week with a pair of rides at Wyong on Tuesday.    

Pike made the transition from Western Australia after the change in Covid-19 Protocols meant that Pike was no longer able to race in the state without being Vaccinated.

After having made the move to New South Wales Pike remains unvaccinated and currently has no plans to get the jab. The states riding rules allow Pike to compete however because their Covid-19 Protocols fall in line with the Governments recommendations.

The veteran hoop has been out of the saddle since 30th January when he last rode at Pinjarra. He has currently made the trip east by himself to start with as his family remains in the West for the time being.

It was a mixed debut for Pike in the east with his first ride Choix De La Mer finishing third in the Klingspor 3YO Maiden Handicap over 1100m for the Peter and Paul Snowden Stable. It was the filly’s third start but first up this prep and ran on well to claim a minor placing.

His other ride on the card courtesy of the Hawkes Racing team was aboard Heavenly Prophet in the Pro Ali Maiden Plate. Unfortunately for Pike and the stable the horse was unable to land a glove on the winner finishing in 10th 7.5 lengths off the winner. 

Pike has another number of rides booked across the coming weeks with him expected to be heading to Sydney on Saturday to compete in his first weekend metro meet where he will team up with trainers like Annabel Neasham and Gary Portelli.
