30/05/02 Oliver Booked for Galroof in Derby
r6doliver.jpg (15356 bytes)Leading Melbourne jockey Damien Oliver has been booked to ride the classy filly Galroof in next weekend's Group One Queensland Derby in Brisbane.

Oliver's services were snapped up by leading trans-Tasman trainer Michael Moroney after Galroof's former rider, the local hoop Stathi Katsidis, was booked for another fancy.

Katsidis, who rode the filly to her last start defeat in the Doomben Cup, will be partnering the Rex Lipp trained Tellson, a galloper who also finished second last weekend.

Galroof, a daughter of the former New Zealand shuttle sire Maroof, had little luck in last weekend's Doomben Cup when beaten a half length by the in form Mr. Bureaucrat. The filly copped interference and had trouble getting a run before charging home to narrowly miss. A subsequent protest by connections against the winner was dismissed after what seemed a length inquiry.

The $498,000 Queensland Derby (Group One) will be run at Eagle Farm next Saturday over 2400 metres.

The race looks strong with other leading chances apart from Galroof and Tellson appearing to be Distinctly Secret, Arlington Road and Cassimir.
