31/01/02 Seamer Back to Work Magic in Melbourne
r2scottseamer.jpg (13197 bytes)Australasia's hottest jockey Scott Seamer, who's past six months in the saddle has been nothing short of sensational, will make a return to Melbourne to ride at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

And among his strong book of rides will be four for Lee Freedman a trainer who described the hoop as "the best lightweight rider in the country" after a win at Sandown in November.

It's been one hell of a ride for Seamer since winning the Group One Caulfield Cup on the Sheila Laxon trained mare Ethereal. A win on the same galloper in the Melbourne Cup would follow three weeks later.

Further Group One joy also came over the Melbourne Cup Carnival when he partnered the Graeme Rogerson trained La Bella Dama to a shock win in the Mackinnon Stakes on Derby Day.

Not content with his great Group One form in Australia, Seamer ventured across the Tasman and rode the winners of the New Zealand Derby (Leica Guv), Auckland Cup (Maguire) and the New Zealand Oaks (Vapour Trail).

While he was there he took two of the three feature events of the programme (Lovely Jubly in the 2YO Classic and Play Station in the listed Gold Coast Stakes).

Among his rides for the Freedman stable at the Valley is the rising talent Vignette. Seamer will also partner Vignette's stablemates Bunfight, Game Hunter and the highly regarded Ugachaka.

Completing his book of rides at Moonee Valley are the Russell Cameron trained Souplesse and the Cliff Brown trained The Concert Grand.

On Sunday Seamer will be at Flemington where he will partner the Lee Freedman trained Our Webster in the listed Talindert Stakes, Michael Moroney's St Therese in the listed Chester Manifold Stakes and Freedman's Joie in the listed Kensington Stakes.
