Legendary jockey Jeff Lloyd is set to go out with the proverbial bang on Saturday when calls time on his career with a near full book of rides at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane, Australia.
Lloyd, who turns 58 in September, will end a star-studded career that includes the past three Brisbane jockeys’ premierships. He is currently a runaway leader and set to take out his fourth Brisbane title this season.
Lloyd announced last month he would retire on July 13, ending 40 years of riding that has included more than 90 Group 1 wins around the world.
Lloyd will have rides for Toby Edmonds (Sunday Session and Granny Red Shoes), Chris Waller (Auerbach), Tony Gollan (Kemsrey), Chris Munce (Woolsey), Kris Lee (Mongolian Wolf), Richard Laming (All Hard Wood).
“They have all supported me and it is a good to have a ride for them on my final day,” he said.
“It is a good lot of rides and I would naturally like to go out on a winning note.”
