Frankel Jockey Secures Hong Kong Sojourn
The South China Morning Post reports that Frankel's jockey Tom Queally has been granted a three-month licence by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Other additions to the riding ranks include Gerald Mosse, Neil Callan and Umberto Rispoli. Licensing committee secretary Steve Railton said, "We had a strong list of applicants to choose from but we thought Queally looked a good fit. Everyone knows of his association with Frankel, but it's worth remembering that he has ridden 13 other Gr1 winners in the past three years as well since he became Sir Henry Cecil's jockey. He's the right sort of age, and has a reputation as a hard worker, which we know is vital for anyone coming here."
