Hutchinson Aims At Nov Return To Saddle
Victorian jockey Peter Hutchinson is riding trackwork for Caulfield trainer Robert Smerdon as part of a potential return to race riding 6 years after his 202 retirement. Hutchinson, 42, told Radio Sport 927 he has lost 10kgs since beginning trackwork in February & noted: "I'm probably the healthiest I have ever been & whereas I had arthritis in my joints & sore spots everywhere before, my joints now are actually really good. . . . . I won't be ready to ride until about mid-November (due to a thumb injury), but when I do I will be really fit & ready to go. . . . . I've still got 20 years left. I'm only a baby!"
