GUN South Australian apprentice Lachlan Neindorf will reunite with a couple of familiar four-legged friends when he rides at Moonee Valley this weekend.
The rising star of the saddle will be back in combination with his South Australian bosses Richard and Chantelle Jolly riding Theresabearinthere and Dexelation.
Neindorf was board Theresabearinthere when he was an impressive Morphettville winner on debut, while he has also partnered Dexelation to victory at Murray Bridge back in June.
“I can’t wait for Saturday, it would be nice to get a winner for the boss(es) over here in Melbourne,” said Neindorf, who is now based with Anthony Freedman.
And the timing of the Jolly team heading to Melbourne looks ideal.
The stable produced a double at Balaklava on Wednesday while smart mare Schilldora farewelled racing in SA in style winning at Morphettville last weekend.
Neindorf was in the winner’s stall for top trainer Lindsay Smith at Ballarat on Thursday and said it has taken a little while to settle in following his move to Melbourne in extremely difficult times due to COVID-19.
“I’m slowly settling in,” Neindorf said.
“I’m starting to find my feet here.”
Neindorf will also continue his association with former SA galloper Silent Command after combining with the Nick Smart-trained gelding when he led throughout at Moonee Valley last start.
