Jim Cassidy Returns To Saddle Next Week
Leading jockey Jim Cassidy "will make his long-awaited return to the saddle at Gosford next Wednesday, before going in search of his 100th Gr1 victory this spring," reported The Daily Telegraph. Cassidy (who currently boasts 99 Gr1 triumphs: 81 in Australian & 18 in NZ) has "finally overcome the wrist injury that has sidelined him since April". He told the newspaper: "It's been a frustrating past 18 months with injury & it's driven me absolutely mad. But I'm ready to move forward. I opened the door 2 weeks ago & tipped all my bad luck out. I'm 45 now but I feel like 25."
