Halford and Fo­ley end part­ner­ship

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS -

Trainer Michael Halford and jockey Shane Fo­ley have ended their suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship with Halford plan­ning a ‘best avail­able’ pol­icy from now on.

“There’s been no fall­ing out. We’ve just de­cided Shane won’t be au­to­matic first choice,” Halford said yes­ter­day. “I’ve spo­ken to all my own­ers and they are happy to go with that. Shane has been a great as­set to us here and we’ve had some great days.”

Fo­ley has five rides at Gowran on Satur­day, in­clud­ing four for Jes­sica Har­ring­ton, and plans to go free­lance.

“I’ve had a great run with Michael. I’ve rid­den for him for over ten years. But we had a chat last night and while I’m dis­ap­pointed there are lads out there a lot worse off then,” Fo­ley said.
