Apprentice Academy highlights: May 2022

The Racing SA Apprentice Academy stole the show at Hawker in May riding the card.

Led by Lachlan Overall who claimed the 2022 Hawker Cup aboard Grinzinger Star, his second country feature aboard the Kylie McKerlie-trained galloper.

Alana Livesey had a break-out day with a double to share riding honours on Hawker Cup Day with Lizzie Annells.

Annells, in her third year of race riding, was also awarded the 2022 Carbine Club Scholarship, the second apprentice jockey to claim the award, after Jacob Opperman in 2021.

Sophie Logan had a solid month in the saddle winning six races from 62 rides.

She had a metropolitan double at Murray Bridge with Calypso Reign for the David Jolly stable before combining with Jaamint.

Ben Price had a big month winning the Millicent Cup at Mount Gambier on Clever Man and capping the day with a riding double.
