Alana Livesey celebrated her 50th career win aboard Bajan Belle at Gawler in November and was rewarded with her metropolitan riding ticket.

“It’s great reward for Alana and also Ryan Balfour Racing who have invested a lot of time and effort,’’ Racing SA Jockey Coach Dean Pettit said.
“It’s all based around her hard work and dedication,’’ he said.
Port Lincoln proved a happy hunting ground with apprentices winning six of the nine races on November 2 before Ben Price and Alana Livesey both had riding trebles there on November 11.
Ellis Wong won the opening heat of the Montgomerie/Forrest Apprentice Series at Strathalbyn, while the academy had another debutante with Rochelle Milnes making her race riding debut at Gawler on November 30.
