Go Bloodstock Australia is delighted to announce that our friend Michael Walker will ride our Cup hope DASHING WILLOUGHBY this Spring with the Caufield & Melbourne Cups in our sights.
Sir Owen is excited to reignite the winning Go Bloodstock / Michael Walker partnership that yielded great success with PURE ELATION, COMIN’ THROUGH and the great CRITERION – who Michael rode to place in the Cup.
Steve O Connor from Go Bloodstock stated ‘Upon discussing a suitable jockey with Sir Owen, Mick & Janice Mariscotti and Andrew Balding – it became clear we wanted a Victorian jockey with good Cup experience who would suit DASHING WILLOUGHBY’s racing style. We wanted someone we could trust who was as motivated as ever. Michael ticked all these boxes and we cannot wait for Michael to get his first sit on DASHING when he arrives in a little over two weeks’.
