Dittman Returning From Singapore To Aust

Wednesday, 11th November 2009

Former top jockey Mick Dittman, now 57, told Radio TAB he will return to live on the Queensland Gold Coast early next year, but not as a trainer. Dittman (who has spent 7 years living in Singapore, initially as a jockey & then as a racing manager & bloodstock consultant) confirmed: “I've given notice (in Singapore) & I'm moving back to the Gold Coast in either February or April. I haven't got any plans to train. I love my golf & the warm climate, but I'll let others do the hard work. Training is hard work & long hours & at this stage of my life I'm quite happy to just race a few horses.”
