Aust Jockey Williams To Ride At Royal Ascot
In England, Australian jockey Craig Williams (who rode 68 winners in Britain during 2000 & 2001) "is set to return for his 1st UK rides for almost 4 years at Royal Ascot," reported racingpost.co.uk. Among Williams's previous UK highlights, he rode subsequent Darley sire Tobougg to victory in the Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes "before a much-publicised split with trainer Mick Channon". Williams (who now rides for David Hayes in Australia & won this season's Gr1 Golden Slipper on Miss Finland & Gr1 Rosehill Guineas on De Beers) will arrive in Britain later today.
