A short and sharp Christmas break lays ahead for the many trainers, jockeys and staff throughout the racing industry. Christmas Day is a seldom day off for many of these hardworking participants. Apprentice jockey Damon Budler, fresh off taking out the Christmas Cup at Moruya aboard Man of Peace will be looking to enjoy some down time with family before mounting a number of live hopes at Thoroughbred Park’s Holiday Race Day on Friday the 27th.
“I’m starting to get a number of good rides now. It’s great.” Budler said.
