TOP HOOP SET TO RETURN TO ACTION

This time of year there’s more talk about which runners are trialling and returning to the track from a spell but on this occasion we are happy to report that one of Sydney’s top jockeys, Glyn Schofield is returning to riding trackwork this Friday

Glyn Schofield to return to competitive action

Schofield will resume his racing career at the end of this week after being cleared for action by the relevant bodies at the start of the month.

A multiple Group 1 winning jockey, who has also had stints racing in Hong Kong and Singapore, hasn’t been in action since Boxing Day 2020.

“I aggravated some old nerve damage which was affecting my right arm,” Schofield said.

“I’d been carrying the problem for some time and masking it as sportsmen tend to do, but it got to the stage where battling through it was doing me more harm than good, and it became time I got things assessed.

“They did some scans and then they did some surgery.

“They did the surgery on my C5, 6 and 7 and the nerve damage or impingement in my neck has taken a little while to repair itself.”

Schofield has 18 Group 1 titles under his belt including impressive wins aboard the likes of Boban, Hay List and a Group 1 win in the Flight Stakes aboard Alizee for the Godolphin team. 


An extended break from the sport has rejuvenated Schofield’s passion and he’s ready to go in the big races once again.

“I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve,” he said.

“I’m really excited to get back to work.

“I’m so free now compared to how it was when I did it.

“The break has given me a great opportunity to recharge the batteries and get out there and ride again.

“The body feels the best it’s felt for a long time.”
