Larry’s Loss is Glyn’s Gain

Glyn Schofield

Glyn Schofield will ride Buffering in the Stradbroke Handicap

South African born Sydney jockey Glyn Schofield will ride local hopeful Buffering in the Group One Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm on June 11.

Buffering’s trainer Rob Heathcote settled on Schofield after stable rider Larry Cassidy was banned for careless riding after Wednesday’s Doomben meeting.

Cassidy was rubbed out for seven meetings after causing interference on Kiwi galloper Fives a Diamond in the 2200m B105 Handicap.

Stewards charged Cassidy with causing interference to Big Max who was ridden by Jason Taylor. Cassidy allowed his mount to shift after the winning post which caused Big Max to veer and almost fall.

“It was an error in judgement on my behalf. I thought I was clear,” said Cassidy.

The suspension will commence after the Queensland Oaks meeting on Saturday, and will mean Cassidy is unable to ride until June 15.

The suspension means that Cassidy will miss the Stradbroke meeting for the second year in a row. A meeting that also includes Group One races the TJ Smith Stakes and the Queensland Derby.

Buffering, who is rated a $31 chance in the Stradbroke, won the Group Three Victory Stakes at Eagle Farm on April 30 before finishing a gallant third in the Group One BTC Cup behind Black Caviar and Hay List at Doomben two weeks later. He then finished down the track in the Doomben 10,000.

However where one door closes another opens and that is certainly the case for Schofield.

Schofield looked as if he would be without a ride in the Stradbroke after John McNair decided against aiming Hay List at the Group One feature.

Hay List had been well supported in pre-post markets for the race, however McNair decided to spell the dual Group One winner, after he sustained a foot abscess in the lead up to the Doomben 10,000.
