South African apprentice gets Aussie win

Visiting South African apprentice Callan Murray has landed a winner at his fourth race ride in Australia.

Indentured to South African trainer Mike De Kock, Murray is having a stint in Australia before coming a fully fledged jockey.

Murray guided the Lindsay Park-trained debutant Strictly Legit to victory in a 1000m maiden race at Mornington on Tuesday.

Last season’s champion apprentice in South Africa, Murray had two rides at Flemington last Saturday, finishing a close second aboard La Speciale.

“I’m really excited to get on the board here,” Murray told broadcaster racing.com.

“The hospitality has been great from Lindsay Park and I’m really grateful for their support.”

Murray rides Barjeel at Sandown on Wednesday for the Lindsay Park team and returns home to South Africa in the middle of next month.
