Bosson To Ride Fern In Slipper

Thursday, 10th March 2016

Top Kiwi jockey Opie Bosson can't wait for his first ride in the world's richest two-year-old race after being booked to ride filly French Fern (Lope de Vega-La Famelia, by Strategic) in Saturday week's $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill, reports NZ Racing Desk. Bosson will partner the David Payne-trained French Fern, who sealed a Slipper berth when scoring an impressive win in last Saturday's Gr2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) at Randwick. "She's a form runner. She's won her last two and won nicely last weekend in a strong field," Bosson said. "I'm looking forward to having a ride in the race. It's a race I've always wanted to ride in and it would be great to win it. I've got the ride on a filly who's going to give me that chance."
