Jet-Setting Apprentices

May 04, 2015

We are proud that two of our talented young riders Ben Thompson and Beau Mertens have been chosen to represent Australia in special races overseas.

Ben (pictured) will be riding in the Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Apprentice World Championship, an all Arabian race to be held at Churchill Downs, Kentucky on May 17.

And Beau heads to France next month, due to take part in the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars at Chantilly.

We wish both boys the very best of luck and I am sure they will prove fine representatives of Australian racing.
