Cassidy Returns to Ride Home Roughie in 2012 Tramway Handicap

Experienced jockey Jim Cassidy made a successful return to riding at Warwick Farm today to partner outsider Tagus to victory in the Group 3 2012 Tramway Handicap (1400m).


Jim Cassidy steers outsider Tagus to victory in the 2012 Tramway Handicap

In what was the last race of the day, Steps In Time set the pace in front and at 800-metre mark held a one-length lead.

Peter Moody-trained four-year-old Moment Of Change was all the punters wanted but he became yet another short-priced casualty after getting caught wide.

He was left to claim third position as $41.00 Tagus held on to claim top honours ahead of the fast-finishing Kontiki Park.

Trainer John Thompson was thrilled for Cassidy who had delayed his return from holidays due to a car accident involving his brother Colin.

He’s one of the best. He jumped on this fella on Tuesday and we were quietly confident coming into today,” Thompson said.

The Patinack trainer said the next stop for the eight-year-old gelding would be the Group 3 Cameron Handicap at Newcastle later this month.

Cassidy was delighted to return with a win after what he said has been a tough period for the entire Cassidy family.

“That was one for the Cassidy family,” he said.

“You know what life’s all about when things like this happen.”

Said Com, who was much hyped earlier this year after an impressive first-up victory failed to fire and laboured at the back of the field for the entire race.

It was a tough end to the day for punters after short-priced favourite Rain Affair failed to fire in the Concorde Stakes.
