Tasmanian Apprentice Raquel Clark to make SA racing debut

Tasmanian apprentice Raquel Clark will make her South Australian riding debut this weekend at Morphettville as she begins her three-month stint with the Macdonald Gluyas Racing stable.

23-year-old Clark finished second in the Tasmania premiership last season with 56 wins and was named top apprentice. This season she has already ridden 30 winners and sits in fourth spot on the Tasmanian Jockey Premiership standings.

Her first ride will be on Pujols for her new bosses in Race 2 and she will have four other rides during the day including With a Bit of Dash (Chris Bieg), Toyshop (Tony McEvoy), Tempting Faith (Alex Stra) and Akbar Mahal (Nicole Bruggeman.)

Clark will be eligible to claim 3kgs in the metropolitan area.

Tasmanian apprentices have had a lot of success in South Australia in recent times with former UBET Apprentice Academy Dux, Siggy Carr establishing herself as a high quality jockey in SA. While fellow apprentice Victor Wong has made a great start to his move to SA with 11 winners so far across the state.
