Boss Aboard Star Turn

Tuesday, 7th March 2017

Glen Boss has been booked to ride top sprinting colt Star Turn (Star Witness-Golden Delicious, by Made of Gold) in Saturday's Gr1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington, reports racenet. One of Australia's most prolific Gr1-winning jockeys who, inter alia, partnered champion mare Makybe Diva to her historic three Melbourne Cup victories (2003-2005), Boss replaces Craig Williams who was suspended for 10 meetings at last weekend's Australian Guineas meeting. Now based in Singapore, Boss will ride Star Turn at 52.5kg in the $1.25 million time-honoured sprint feature. Star Turn is coming off a first-up third behind Terravista in the Gr1 Black Caviar Lighting Stakes (1000m) on 18 February.
