Multiple Group One-winning jockey Glen Colless brought up another milestone when he reached 2000 career Australian winners on Gold Coast winner Lucadeal.
Colless produced a perfect ride in a Maiden Plate to land Lucadeal ($4.80) who is trained by Tony Gollan and owned by Linda Huddy.
He started his career in NSW’s Northern Rivers 35 years ago but has since ridden in races all over Australia and in Asia.
Colless is best remembered for his association with the star sprinter Mr Innocent who won the 2000 edition of the Group One Doomben 10,000.
He won the Brisbane jockeys premiership in 2005-06 when he formed a lethal partnership with now retired trainer Alan Bailey.
Colless rides mainly on the Gold Coast these days where he has linked with the powerful Chris Waller satellite stable.
