Have I missed any news about jockey arrangements for Micheal Stoute.
Kerrin McEvoy seems to be riding quite a few for Michael Stoute at the moment, some of which I would have instinctively thought Ryan Moore would have been riding, like Dance of Light today & Adagio in the Dewhurst tomorrow?
Looking at the results from during the week, K.McEvoy rode a couple of winners for him on Mythical Kid & Ladies Best as well. I think R.Moore was on Hannon horses in those races, but even so you would have thought he would have found a way to get on a Stoute fav if he could. I had it my mind that R.Moore was the jockey of choice for the Stoute horses?October 13, 2006 at 20:52 #79779
….and Shorthand in the Rockfel<br>October 13, 2006 at 21:00 #79780
Funnily enough I’ve had little time to see domestic racing of late so haven’t seen how he’s riding but if what I’ve read is true I wouldn’t be remotely surprised to hear he’s found himself attached to a big yard.
Musical chairs clearly kicking off already…October 13, 2006 at 21:07 #79781
Stoute tends to keep his own counsel on matters like these, other than the quoting the proverbial ‘we’ll use the best available.’ McEvoy continues to show he’s one of the best riders in this country these days so with Moore employed by Hannon it’s no surprise he’s picking up the rides when Moore is unavailable. WHen McEvoy wins on fillies like Shorthand first time up, it isn’t a surprise he gets to keep the ride.October 13, 2006 at 21:09 #79782
I see hardly any mid week racing either Zoz (hope the photography going well btw, be sure to stick with it, you never know when the breaks will come in life!)
I do know from watching McEvoy on the TV at weekends that he seems a very thoughtful & accomplished jockey.October 13, 2006 at 21:23 #79783
Cheers Colin, will do!
Very nice of you to say :)
Future is obviously bright for Kerrin, which reminds me, does anyone know what happened to Darren Williams who came over here for Channon I believe and won the Dewhurst on Toubougg?October 13, 2006 at 21:30 #79784Grey DesireParticipant

Pretty sure he’s based back home in Oz these daysOctober 13, 2006 at 21:37 #79785
Figured he might be.
Craig, that’s it.
Daft moment there!
Anyone know how he’s doing out there?October 13, 2006 at 21:38 #79786
It was Craig Williams Zoz. He had a falling out with Channon and went back to Oz I think. Though he’s also had plenty of rides in Hong Kong during their season since 2002. He also had a handful of rides including for Channon this summer in the UK.
Darren Williams of course has bigger problems, currently his licence is under suspension why he awaits trial on allegations of race fixing.October 13, 2006 at 21:39 #79787

Craig Williams surprised the Aussies by upping sticks and coming to England because of a romantic attachment.He got introduced to Mick Channon but hardly got a ride until Steve Drowne broke a leg which gave him his opportunity. Williams won the Dewhurst and Prix de la Salamandre on Tobougg. Then fell out with Channon and spent some time in Hong Kong without great success. He was rated a weak rider in a finish in the UK.<br>He is now back in Melbourne, Victoria riding for top trainer David Hayes.<br>Darren Williams on the other hand has more serious problems.October 14, 2006 at 06:17 #79789
From a bit of research from the RP website, it looks like Stoute does like putting up McEvoy on a decent 2yo with a winning chance.
Jockeys who have rode 2yo winners for Stoute this season:<br>McEvoyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â – 6 wins from 10 rides, Sanders – 2 from 3, <br>Hills – 2 from 5, Winston – 2 from 15, Moore – 1 from 11<br> <br>AS DJ indicated with Shorthand earlier, Stoute does seems to stick with the jockey who has ridden a horse previously. Another example today is Mick Kinane riding Jeremy.<br>October 14, 2006 at 08:02 #79790witParticipant

Craig Williams was in the news in Aus last week:
Hayes blasts ‘horror’ ride
LEADING Melbourne jockey Craig Williams had his seasonal "brain snap" on the outstanding filly Miss Finland in the Manifold Stakes at Flemington, according to trainer David Hayes, who watched the race at Randwick yesterday.
"He had one last spring and let’s hope this is his last," said Hayes, somewhat sweetened by his Metrop success with Tawqeet.
Hayes was aghast when Miss Finland established a big lead from a wide barrier and described it as "the horror at Flemington".
He did elaborate, but in language unbecoming….

<br> Intruigingly Moore rides the Macevoy horse Bulwark today for the dreadful Amanda Perret.I suspect that Godolphin committments at nomination stage were the likely explanation,but it allows the opportunity to compare reactive vigour with pro active finesse.<br> Whether KM jumps ship and takes a Stoute retainer is more problematic.I’m sure hell bank more than this year’s champion jockey, once you factor in his subsidy from Godolphin.That aside,Stoute’s stable rider has vastly more opportunities to show off his skills at the big table and attract the interest of third parties such as Fabre,for whom he has ridden only the bad going Gravitas.<br> Ultimately his destination would look to be Ballydoyle but to get there he needs to more in focus for APO to make one of his better jockey related descions.
