19/06/02 Cassidy Back a Winner at Randwick
r1jimcassidy.jpg (10563 bytes)Leading jockey Jim Cassidy made a sizzling return to the saddle when one of his two mounts at today's Randwick meeting in Sydney bolted in.

It was fitting that the debut performer Canzano would be trained by Sydney's premier trainer and Cassidy's partner in crime Gai Waterhouse.

The Cassidy and Waterhouse combination proved much too good in the second race of the day, the second division of the Petersham Handicap over 1100 metres.

With much of the Randwick crowd still amazed by the win in the first race of the Newcastle juvenile Eastwest Success, the attention soon switched to the Waterhouse youngster.

Canzano, who'd impressed winning a recent trial in good style, is from the former talented race mare Ginzano.

Nesnas was second over the line, three parts of a length clear of the third placegetter Tutelage.

Cassidy made his debut at the Sydney meeting following a stint on the sidelines with a knee injury. During the two months off Cassidy underwent some arthroscopic surgery.

After a couple of weeks of trackwork at Randwick Cassidy told reporters he would be likely to take about six rides at the Sydney meeting on Saturday. He also said he would extend his trackwork to incorporate Warwick Farm and Rosehill in the near future.
