05/07/02 Craig's Short Stopover Before Returning Overseas
r5cwilliams.jpg (11381 bytes)Leading Australian jockey Craig Williams, who's established himself as a top hoop in England and Dubai over the past twelve months, will be attempting to win Saturday's Caloundra City Cup in Queensland in his short local "holiday."

Williams will team up with Mornington trainer Max Hinton by partnering the handy stayer Lodger in the $202,000 feature on the Sunshine Coast.

Lodger, who ran second to Oliver Beer in the Swan Hill Cup two starts back, is one of the lightweight chances in the 2400 metre race.

A former leading apprentice and multiple Group One winning hoop, Williams has three rides on the day at Caloundra.

He'll be in the country for "a few more weeks" before again leaving for overseas in what he is hoping to be a fruitful and economically successfull assignment.

"I'll return to England for a little while before going over to Hong Kong where I have a three month contract," Williams said on radio this morning. "Hopefully I will ride well enough to get an extension through to the end of the season. That's the short term plan anyway."

Williams rode for a short time in Hong Kong during the latter part of their recently completed season with good results.

"I had a handful of winners and quite a few placings in Hong Kong," Williams said. "I was happy with my consistency there."

As well as riding Lodger for Max Hinton, Williams will be teaming up with another Victorian trainer in a feature race. He will be aboard the Colin Little trained sprinter Kapuna in the Glasshouse Handicap.
