McDonald Secures Godolphin UK Rides This Weekend
Meanwhile, Godolphin's number one Australian-based jockey James McDonald will take his first rides at Newcastle in England this weekend, reports Racing Post. One of McDonald's mounts will be the Charlie Appleby-trained Antiquarium (New Approach) which is scheduled to run in Saturday's Northumberland Plate over 16 furlongs. "James McDonald has ridden Antiquarium at home and seems to get on well with him, so he'll be taking the ride," Appleby said. "He ran a nice race back after a break at Newmarket the other day and has form on synthetics, so we'd be hopeful granted a half-decent draw."
