Weekend Wrap: Jake returns with a treble, Richard Jolly leaves with four

Leading jockey Jake Toeroek made a statement at his return to race riding at Gawler on Saturday with a riding treble.

Toeroek had been away from the race for the best part of month on an overseas holiday, dominating at his return with three winners in combination with the Richard and Chantelle Jolly stable.

He won the opening race of the day aboard $3.90 chance Six Stars, got home another $3.90 chance in Hard Prince who secured his win via a protest before Klabel justified his short quote scoring at $2.50.

“I came back a bit tubby, I enjoyed some pasta and beer a bit much,’’ Toeroek said.

“I’m definitely feeling it,’’ he said.

The treble giving Toeroek a five-win lead over Todd Pannell in the battle for the Metropolitan Jockey Premiership.

“Hopefully that seals the deal,’’ Toeroek said.

“I won’t count my chickens before the hatch, we’ll just keep our head down and bum up,’’ he said.

The win was one of four for the Jolly stable with Shakespeare scoring at $26 with Stacey Metcalfe in the saddle earlier in the day.

The Jolly stable edging one win clear of Will Clarken and Niki O’Shea in the Metropolitan Trainer Premiership.

It was also a day for the roughies.

Alana Livesey claiming a riding double with $21 chance Leader’s Pride and $31 shot Spelman, while the biggest winner of the day caused a knockout blow to the majority of quaddie punters in the second leg when local Badiss scored an eight-length win at $61 with Justin Potter in the saddle.
