BOWMAN TO RETURN NEXT WEEK

BOWMAN TO RETURN NEXT WEEK

Top Australian jockey Hugh Bowman is set to return to race riding next week after his manager Bryan Haskins confirmed the jockey would be in action at Randwick on July 6.

Bowman has already been confirmed for three rides at the meeting, including promising New Zealand raider Simply Optimistic and unbeaten three-year-old Sir Elton. He has not been seen at the races since May 1 at Warwick Farm after deciding to take a break from racing following a busy autumn carnival.

Bowman is expected to ride at the trials prior to his race riding return.
