Tony Noonan Racing would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our apprentice and stable jockey Jake Noonan on his fine achievement on Saturday where he was able to outride his metropolitan claim with a Stakes winner on the Peter Snowden trained AGULHAS at Morphettville. We are really proud of what Jake has been able to achieve, it is not common that apprentices outride their claim within the period of their apprenticeship, Jake had 18 months longer if required and he has worked terribly hard to achieve this milestone in his career. On behalf of Jake we would like to thank all our owners here at Greendale for giving him the opportunities, without that sort of support he would not be in the position he is in today so we are very appreciative of the support he has received from our owners during his apprenticeship. As of next week Jake will become a senior rider, at this stage he plans to stay with us in the short term although there is some thought that he may go overseas for a period. We are certain that if he continues to work hard at his trade that the success will follow. Congratulations Jake and hopefully there will be many more winners in front of him.
