Champion jockey Craig Williams has won 95 races this season, and looks a certainty to claim his eighth Victorian Metro Jockeys’ Premiership.
But it’s fair to say that his win on debutant Captain Hedderwick in race 3 at Geelong on Friday was one of his most memorable for the season.
The 49-time Group 1 winning jockey rode the victory for his brother Damien, who trains a small team at Cranbourne including the three year-old son of Captain Gerrard.
“It’s very special, I have two brothers and both of them have been a big part of where I am now and it’s a big thrill,” Craig said.
“Damien doesn’t have many in work and it was a thrill for me to come down and ride a winner for him.”
Damien said he is hopeful the three year-old can continue his winning form through the winter months.
“The horse has shown us quite a lot of ability at home, it’s taken a while to get him to the races and glad we’ve waited all this time for him,” he said.
