DEE PICKS UP RIDE ON GINGER
LEADING Emirates Stakes contender Gingernuts will be ridden by Michael Dee in the Group 1 race with Hugh Bowman losing an appeal against his 11-meeting suspension.
Te Akau Racing, which manages the syndicate that races the triple Group 1 winner, has turned to its former apprentice to guide the four-year-old in tomorrow’s 2000m-race.
Stable rider Opie Bosson who has ridden Gingernuts to win the NZ Derby, Rosehill Guineas and Windsor Park Plate, will stay at home for the 2000 Guineas meeting Riccarton.
The Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards-trained Gingernuts won the Windsor Park Plate on September 23 and was runner-up in the Livamol Classic.
