Boss Declares "Backstabbers Forced Me Out Of Sydney"
Under the headlines "Backstabbers Forced Me Out" & "Revealed: Why Glen Boss Quit Sydney Racing", The Daily Telegraph reported leading jockey Glen Boss "the nation's most successful big-race rider this decade, revealed he had no option but to abandon Sydney racing because he felt betrayed by a number of owners & trainers". Boss (whose latest Gr1 triumph came on Irish Lights in Wednesday's Thousand Guineas at Caulfield) "says he has no regrets about leaving Sydney & now calling Melbourne home". He declared bluntly: "I couldn't have stayed in Sydney even if I wanted to. There were too many daggers - I'm still getting them out of my back!" The newspaper noted Boss "has placed his Sydney home on the market & is hunting for a house in Melbourne, where he plans to raise his family". (Oct 16)
