Luck of the Ir­ish for duo

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT -

AP­PREN­TICE Michael Mur­phy is al­ways happy to see name­sake, Beaudesert trainer Diane Mur­phy.

Mur­phy, the trainer, has twice opted for Mur­phy, the ap­pren­tice, when need­ing a re­place­ment rider for her horse Cashenko.

The first time was in Au­gust last year when Cashenko won at Ip­swich.

It hap­pened again at the Gold Coast on Satur­day when Michael picked up the win­ning ride on Cashenko ($17) af­ter fel­low ap­pren­tice Jack­son Mur­phy was in­dis­posed.

Diane, who has six horses in work, is not re­lated to ei­ther of the young riders.
