APPRENTICE ROBBIE DOLAN GETS STRADBROKE RIDE

New South Wales apprentice Robbie Dolan will partner Saturday’s Group 2 Moreton Stakes (1200m) winner Pretty In Pink in next Saturday’s Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane.

Trainer John O’Shea and owner Segenhoe Thoroughbreds Australia have elected to back-up the three-year-old Sebring filly after her victory on Saturday when ridden by Robbie Fradd.

A new jockey was needed with Pretty In Pink handicapped with 49.5 kilograms, necessitating connections to find a lightweight jockey.

O’Shea produced another three-year-old filly in Private Steer to win the 2003 Stradbroke Handicap.
