15/04/02 Brilliant Byrne Bags Five in Macau
Star Queensland jockey Jim Byrne has continued his great form in Macau when he rode five winners on the card yesterday.

Byrne's first win came in the second race when Smart Flyer defeated Born to be Lucky by a short head in the Raffingora Handicap (Division 2) over 1000 metres.

It was a race to race double for Byrne when Siu Yuk, a son of Defecting Dancer, downed Joyful by a head in the 2000 metre Nebbiola Handicap.

There was a little wait before the third win came in the eighth event thanks to New Glory. That galloper took the feature race, the open class Spring Trophy, by a length over Profitable.

A little over half an hour later Hop Shing Lucky made it four for Byrne when that galloper cruised home by over three lengths in the second division of the Geopelia Handicap. Shane Scriven's mount So Funny was best of the rest in second place in the 1000 metre race.

It was three wins in a row and five for the afternoon when Satinka scored a hard fought win in the Bijou D'inde Handicap. Again it was Shane Scriven who finished second, this time aboard Oasis.

Byrne wasn't the only Australian rider to taste success on the twelve event card. Melbourne's Sam Hyland took the final event with Oriental Standard.

There were also minor placings on the card to Nathan Day and Danny Brereton.
