Callan Murray may only have arrived in Australia late last week, but SA’s Champion Apprentice has hit the ground running.
When Lindsay Park Stables‘ reserve runner Wicked Sensation got a last minute run at the Park Kilmore country course on Monday, 12 December, there was no hanging about. Despite expecting a few more days to find his feet, Callan found himself with his first Australian riding engagement, aboard the 3yo Bel Esprit filly in the 1462m Buds And Branches F&M Maiden Plate. Callan justified his backers and got his campaign off to a good start, finishing less than half a length 4th. Well done, young man!
