21/01/02 Six Week Ban for Perth Apprentice
r4goldendelic2.jpg (17050 bytes)Young West Australian apprentice Casey Dredge has been suspended for six weeks after his handling of the beaten odds on favourite Golden Delicious in The Sorrento Handicap (1100m) at Ascot on Saturday.

Stewards banned the rider after he elected to stop riding the Made of Gold filly over the concluding stages and the pair were subsequently grabbed by one of the outsiders of the field Little Rosary.

Golden Delicious (4/5 fav) skipped clear of her rivals with about 300 metres to run and the young hoop thought he was "home and hosed," but to the disgust of favourite punters a 50/1 pop scored by a head in the final few strides.

A smart two-year-old Golden Delicious shot to fame when she careered away from her rivals in winning the listed Concept Sports Trophy at Moonee Valley last August.

At her following start she chased home Tully Dane when fifth in the Group Three HDF McNeil Stakes at Caulfield on September 1.

Golden Delicious (Made of Gold-Barossa Gourmet), a three-year-old filly is trained by former top jockey Jim Taylor, who now prepares his team at Maylands.
