Walker back in action tomorrow

Published:Friday | January 5, 2018 | 12:00 AM

Champion jockey Omar Walker will be back in the saddle at Caymanas Park tomorrow after a near three-month absence.

The six-time champion broke his right arm on the exercise track last October 13 and had been out of action since. His lead at the head of the jockeys' standing was, however, enough to keep him clear of rivals on last Saturday's final day of racing for 2017. He has two rides on tomorrow's 10-race programme, both for trainer Wayne DaCosta.

In the second event, he will be aboard the three-year-old ARIA, then in the sixth, he will ride the highly fancied four-year-old ARMAGEDDON.
