3/12/2018 Colless to make comeback

Queensland jockey Glen Colless will resume trackwork on the Gold Coast today in a bid to return to race riding before the end of the year. Colless hurt his back in mid-September and has undergone intense treatment in recent weeks in order to overcome the issue. "I am resuming trackwork riding on Monday and I should be ready to start taking rides about a week to ten days after that," Colless said. "I am obviously keen to get back with the summer carnival and Magic Millions looming." Colless has ridden more than 1000 winners in a career which has featured around 30 stakes winners including the Doomben 10,000 (Gr 1, 1350m) (Mr Innocent) and BTC Cup (Gr 1, 1200m) (Malaguerra).
