Will Price returns to Adelaide on Saturday with a busy book of rides and a score to settle at Morphettville.
Price has four rides for the Ryan Balfour stable along with key rides for Victorian trainers Archie Alexander and Andrew Noblet. The 21-year-old is set to ride alongside younger brother Ben for a second time under race conditions.
“He actually rode at the Warrnambool carnival earlier in the year and beat me,’’ Will said.
“So, I need to try and get one back on him,’’ he said.
Will claimed a second successive Victorian Jockey’s Association Rising Star Award last season after winning both the Metropolitan Apprentice title and Victorian Apprentice title while finishing fourth behind Jamie Kah on the Metropolitan Jockey’s Premiership.
He plans to base himself in Adelaide over the next six weeks but will still be riding in Victoria when the demand is there.
“I’ll have to make a few hit-and-run missions,’’ Price said.
“But the plan is to be in Adelaide up until Christmas and maybe New Years,’’ he said.
