O’Brien teams with Boss at the Valley

Glen Boss will team up with trainer Danny O’Brien this Saturday as the star jockey plans a move to Melbourne.

Boss has been booked to ride last start winner I’m A Toff and the talented Geyser Peak for O’Brien at Saturday’s Moonee Valley meeting.

Boss and O’Brien teamed on Stakes Day during the Flemington spring carnival for a victory with Vigor, pictured returning to scale here.

On Saturday, the O’Brien stable will be looking to continue their Valley form after 3yo Keano's slashing win last Friday night at the track.

Boss will ride freelance once based permanently in Melbourne and is expected to ride work for a handful of trainers including O’Brien.

During the spring, jockeys to ride winners for the powerful Flemington stable include Damien Oliver, James Winks, Steven Arnold, Danny Nikolic, Dwayne Dunn, Craig Williams and Boss.

In other O'Brien stable news, Hong Kong bound Douro Valley will round out his Australian preparations for the International Vase on December 14 at Sha Tin with a gallop between races at the Valley on Saturday with stablemate Ballack.
