25/6/2018 Kersley to stay in Victoria

Talented apprentice Fred Kersley is hoping to continue to make a mark in Melbourne having made the permanent move to the Lindsay Park stable. Kersley initially transferred to Victoria from Western Australia on loan to the Lindsay Park team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig in early December but shortly afterwards spent six weeks out of the saddle with a thumb and elbow injury. He returned to race riding in February and a win on the Lindsay Park-trained Miles Of Krishan (Snitzel) at Flemington on Saturday was the 18-year-old's 14th Melbourne city victory for the season. "I've officially transferred over. A couple of weeks ago I signed my papers, so the boss is stuck with me now," Kersley said. "Melbourne is great. I'm loving it, but the weather not so much.”
