Stable Apprentice Muhammad Nuh bin Mohamed Komari, or Roy as he is better known, had his first race ride aboard Golden Mile in Race 10 on Sunday. Roy who has been with Cliff’s stable for more than a year, had been racking up the trial rides over the past 4 months and was granted his Apprentice jockey license by The Singapore Turf Club on April 1st.
Long time stable clients Gold Stable have raced horses all around the world, including having Royalty with Princess Anne riding in a race in the Yong family’s famous gold and red colours. These colours have been carried to victory in many countries and are of course very recognizable in Singapore.
On hand to lend support and advice were stable Assistant trainer Tim Fitzsimmons and champion jockey Michael Rodd. Roy followed instructions to the letter, and looked good riding Golden Mile to the line allowing his mount to settle a little worse than midfield before bringing him to the center of the track. Golden Mile not really suited to a wet turf track, finished off nicely with Roy riding confidently to the line.
We wish Roy all the best with his career as a Jockey, and with his hard work and willingness to learn from the best in the business in Michael Rodd, it won’t be very long before Roy is seen in the winners stall.
