EDMONDS HOPES TO GIVE LLOYD FAREWELL GIFT

Toby Edmonds is hoping to send retiring jockey Jeff Lloyd out a winner with two strong bookings at Doomben on Saturday.

Lloyd, who turns 58 in September, will end a star-studded career that includes the past three Brisbane jockeys’ premierships with a near full book of rides at the weekend, while he is currently a runaway leader and set to take out his fourth Brisbane title this season.

Edmonds will saddle the Lloyd-ridden Granny Red Shoes and Sunday Session and said: “It would be great to train a winner for Jeff on his final day and I think it would be vice versa for him wanting to ride a winner for me. He’s had a great career and we’ve had a lot of success together over the years. He deserves a good retirement and a safe final day.”
