07/01/02 Ladder Leader Beasley Quits Macau
Macau's current leading rider Australian Danny Beasley has quit his current riding country in that country and will return to Australia.

In a statement issued over the weekend the Macau Jockey Club said that Beasley had relinquished his licence citing "personal commitment."

Beasley rode in Macau for the final time at the local Sunday day meeting and he was in great form with a winning treble.

The aptly named Cheers Forever won the first race of the day, the Sandown Handicap over 1500 metres. With Beasley aboard the gelding won by a length and a half.

Beasley was back in the winner's circle after he partnered Super Fortune to victory in the Warwick Handicap. That galloper was too good winning by three parts of a length in the 1400 metre event.

At his second last ride in the country he saluted on Adjudicator. Then pairing were comprehensive two length winners in the first division of the Ripon Handicap (1400m). Nathan Day was second aboard Tapbo Win.

There wasn't the fairytale finish for the top rider though. Riding in the second last race of the day Beasley could manage to finish only third behind fellow Australian Danny Brereton aboard Happy Morning.

Beasley leaves Macau with a six winner buffer in the jockey's premiership following his treble on Sunday.

The decision by Beasley to quit his contract in Macau comes hot on the heels of a similar move by another Australian ex-pat Brad Stewart who made his shock decision a month ago.

Meanwhile, apart from the winner for Danny Brereton aboard Happy Morning in the second division of the Ripon Handicap, there was joy for fellow Aussie John Didham who partnered New Hero to victory in the second race on the day.
