Luck of the Irish for duo
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.
