Reith Claims Winning Treble At Canterbury

Jockey Christian Reith demonstrated his in-form ability by claiming a treble at Canterbury on Saturday.

The talented rider scored wins on Rockin’ Rocket, Kimberly Kid and Rain Affair, while claiming a close second on Zachary behind Legsman in the Rydges Parramatta Handicap.

Reith began his onslaught with a win on Joe Pride’s Rain Affair in the De Bortoli Wines Handicap.

“He’s a very, very serious horse,” Reith said of rain affair.

The jockey saluted again in the Guineas Restaurant Handicap on Kimberly Kid, before producing a challenging victory on Rockin’ Rocket in the last race of the day.

“He was there to be beaten today and was probably entitled to be beaten,” Reith said of Rockin Rocket’s performance.

The jockey was disappointed that he was unable to produce a fourth win on Zachary.

“I might have gone a bit soon on Zachary,” Reith said.

“I thought he could win today too because I know Legsman and thought he might have been vulnerable.

“But if you’re going to beat him you have to get past him quickly and can’t let him eyeball you. I knew I was in trouble when I got up to Legsman but couldn’t get past him.”

Reith is appreciative of the opportunities he is being given by the trainers and connections who keep asking him to ride their horses.

“Things are going really well for me at the moment and it’s nice to be getting these sorts of opportunities,” Reith said.

“I’m making every post a winner.

“I thought I could ride four winners today but that was until the horse in the first race (Benfica) was scratched.”
