17/01/02 Macau Gets Set for Australasian Invasion

Four Australians and one New Zealander will be taking up riding contracts in Macau over the next two months.

Leading Brisbane jockey Jim Byrne, who has successfully returned from a recent serious injury, has already arrived in Macau and will begin riding immediately.

The 30-year-old, who has ridden close to 800 winners, has a contract through until the middle of March.

Comeback Melbourne jockey Peter Hutchinson has a three month contract which will see him ride in Macau from February until April.

36-year-old Hutchinson, who's older brother Raymond is the Veterinary Surgeon for the Macau Jockey Club, has ridden in excess of 800 winners with 50 at stakes level. A former top apprentice in South Australia when he was apprenticed to Colin Hayes at Lindsay Park, Hutchinson's most memorable win was when he rode Fraar to a shock success in the Caulfield Cup.

A dual winner of the Queensland Jockey of the Year, Shane Scriven is the third Aussie heading to Macau. Like Hutchinson he has a three month contract from February through to April.

A triple Group One winner, Scriven, who is also 36, has already experienced overseas racing with stints in Dubai and Singapore.

Representing the ladies and New Zealand is popular rider Cathy Tremayne. A 33-year-old Tremayne, who started riding in 1984, has already ridden in Australia, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Tremayne is currently fourth on the New Zealand Woman Jockey's all-time list and she has ridden nearly 500 winners from 5000 rides. She is a Group One winner seven times and has ridden 24 other stakes winners.
