MASTERFUL RIDE BY OUR FORMER APPRENTICE

Dec 18, 2014

Congratulations to Michael Carlile, owner and breeder of Docking and also his dam Spoilt for Choice. It was a gutsy effort by both jockey and horse at Seymour today to lead all the way and win the Seymour Technology Handicap.

It was Lucky 13 for Docking today, scoring his third career win at his thirteenth start.  A beautiful front-running ride by Rhys McLeod saw Docking hold off a couple of fast-finishers to win by a head in a tight finish.  It is always special to share a win with Rhys who we consider to be not only a very under-rated Jockey, but more importantly a part of our family.  We go a long way back together,  as Rhys joined us when he was a 14 year old youngster weighing 28kg.  Together we have enjoyed many successes at the highest levels and we are very proud of Rhys as a person and as a rider.

Well done to all the "Epsom Lodge" team who had Docking looking a picture of health today. 

                             GOOD TEAM EFFORT GUYS
