8/4/2019 McEvoy to ride boom colt Chenier

Kerrin McEvoy has been booked to ride impressive debut winner Chenier (Medaglia d’Oro) when the Anthony Freedman-trained juvenile tests his Champagne Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) credentials in a handicap (1400m) at Sandown on Wednesday. "Kerrin McEvoy is coming down from Sydney to ride him with a view to riding him in the Champagne," Freedman's racing manager Brad Taylor said. "We knew he was very good but you never go to the races thinking they are going to run away and win by six lengths."
