Comeback Brett by The Gurkha
Well known local jockey Brett Mathews is committed to a comeback to race riding this season and has been busily getting his riding weight down for the start of the season.
At Sunday’s trials Mathews weighed 58 kg and aims to be able to ride at 56 kg throughout the season.
Mathews has been riding for Dean Nazarri who has boosted his numbers to around 15 for the season and has also been helping out leading trainer Peter Fernie.
The former leading jockey has decided to discontinue his employment with Goldfields’ Toyota to concentrate on full time employment as a jockey this season.
