Apprentices to take centre stage at Roxby

Saturday's Roxby Downs meeting will be the first in South Australian racing to feature only apprentice riders.

No senior jockeys will make the trip north for the Cup meeting which will be run alongside Saturday’s metropolitan meeting Murray Bridge meeting.

The six races have attracted 40 acceptors, all of which will be ridden by the next generation of young riders.

"It will be a really exciting day for the Academy and with this being a first for the state, it is a massive achievement for the program." Apprentice Academy SA Master Briony Moore said.

"We are thrilled that all of our talented up-and-coming apprentice jockeys will get the chance to showcase their skills on the one day."

Stacey Callow and Felicity Atkinson both have a full book of six rides while in-form apprentice Lachlan Overall will team with Port Augusta Cup runner-up Azzureous in the feature.
