Kiwi Hoop Myers Applies For Qld Licence
Apprentice Rosie Myers has applied to complete her apprenticeship with Eagle Farm trainer Kelso Wood, reports theinformant.co.nz. She currently boasts over 200 winners to her credit in NZ including Gr1 wins in the NZ Oaks, Thorndon Mile and NZ Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes. Myers rode for Wood during the winter carnival and he is a convert saying: "I am, and always have been, anti-female jockeys, but this girl is simply outstanding. She is as good as any apprentice jockey I have ever seen and that includes everyone. Not only is she a beautiful girl to work with, her attitude is exceptional. She is always the same."
