31/05/02 Byrne's Licence Extended in Macau
Top Queensland jockey Jim Byrne has had his Macau riding permit extended until the end of the season.

Byrne, who's quickly become one of the leading riders in Macau over the past few months, was originally due to end his current contract in the middle of next month. However, Macau officials have given the talented hoop an extension on his stay.

From limited opportunities Byrne has rocketed to second place on the Macau Jockey's Premiership behind South African Robert Burke.

If Byrne's current win percentage is transferred to the amount of rides that Burke has had during the season then the Australian star would be more than 10 winners in front on the table.

Australian riders also hold third and fourth place on the premiership. Danny Brereton and John Didham are next on the riding table.

Incredibly depsite not having ridden in Macau for about six months the current Sydney based hoop Danny Beasley still holds sixth place on the premiership with 40 wins, eight fewer than Byrne.
