The next generation of South Australian riders stole the show at the weekend.
Angus Chung rode his first city winner (and a double) at Morphettville while Stacey Callow landed her first win in just her second race ride 780 kilometres away at Ceduna.
Chung was victorious aboard Our Deep Agenda for boss Jon O’Connor before partnering a well backed Annika to claim success late in the day.
Callow partnered It’s All Gossip to victory for Garret Lynch at Ceduna with her parents Noel and Renee watching on via live stream from the Gold Coast.
Not to be outdone, Noel followed suit winning on the Gold Coast shortly after.
Fellow apprentice Felicity Atkinson took riding honours with a treble at Ceduna including the day’s feature aboard Choncape, while Chung shared riding honours at Morphettville with Jason Holder, Kayla Crowther and Teagan Voorham who all bagged two winners. Jade Doyle also made her race riding debut with four rides at Ceduna on Saturday.
Holder holds a commanding lead in the Metropolitan Jockey’s Premiership with 23 wins in season 2021/22, while Voorham’s return to from injury has been impressive.
She has ridden 12 winners, nine coming in the city.
After winning six of the eight races at Gawler midweek, apprentice jockeys claimed all five races on Saturday's Ceduna program.
Meanwhile in Victoria, SA's own Jamie Kah wasted little time in claiming a feature in her first weekend back in the saddle winning the Pakenham Cup aboard Smokin’ Romans.
Co-trainer’s Ciaron Maher and David Eustace have indicated the Adelaide Cup in March will be the horse’s target in 2022.
