28/02/02 Jockeys in Dual City Group Race Mission
The lure of rich feature races in two cities in one 24 hour period is too much for four riders who will ride in both Melbourne and Sydney on Saturday.

Leading hoops Scott Seamer, Brett Prebble, Glen Boss and Patrick Payne will kick off Saturday by riding at the Futurity Stakes meeting at Caulfield before boarding planes and heading to Sydney where they will saddle up at the Canterbury Guineas night meeting.

Seamer, who's riding in white hot (red isn't hot enough for him) form at present, has five confirmed bookings for Caulfield, four for Lee Freedman as well as the champion Cups heroine Ethereal. He will then head to Sydney where his feature ride is aboard the kiwi Derby king Leica Guv for Jeff McVean. He is also booked to ride the boom Queensland filly Calaway Gal and the in form kiwi Preferred Lies in Group events.

Glen Boss is in the busiest weekend of all the hoops. He will fly to Sydney, where he has eight rides on the Canterbury Guineas card. Then he will remain in Sydney where already he has five bookings for the meeting at Warwick Farm on Sunday.
