Jenny - Clean

SENIOR racing officials are confident that improved quarantine arrangements will bring a return of Japanese horses not only to participate in this year’s spring carnival in Melbourne, but also in the rich Championships series in Sydney next year.

PATRICK BARTLEY reports in THE AGE that talks this week with Japanese officials and Australian scout Leigh Jordon in Tokyo were so successful, both parties say, that it looks likely Japanese horses could again become regular visitors here.

TWENTY years after retiring from race riding, Jamie Bayliss says his comeback this week has proved he was ‘‘born to be a jockey’’.

LAURA BANKS reports in THE AGE that the 44-year-old father of Victorian apprentices Jake and Regan, returned to race riding on Sunday at Geelong after a two decade hiatus and saddled up again for three rides on Monday at Moe. He is yet to return to the winner’s list but heads to Mornington on Tuesday hoping for better luck.
