Oct 12 2020 Newitt picks up Mirage Dancer ride

Craig Newitt will ride Mirage Dancer (Frankel) for the first time on a race day in Saturday’s Caulfield Cup (Gr 1, 2400m), with Trent Busuttin delighted with the way the seven year-old returned to Melbourne following his Metropolitan (Gr 1, 2400m) victory on October 3. “I’m very happy with him. He has travelled back from Sydney excellent,” Busuttin told Racing.com. “I couldn’t be more pleased with him. He certainly hasn’t gone backwards. He’s nice and fit now, we just have to keep him fresh, put that bounce in his legs. There’s no reason why he can’t run well again.” Mirage Dancer finished third in the Caulfield Cup last year, as Japanese raider Mer De Glace (Rulership) came out on top.
