On a winner

SEYMOUR resident and former Kiwi jumps jockey, Cory Parish, had a life-changing day on Saturday when he piloted the David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Boom Time to win this year’s Group 1 $3.15M BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m).
Parish, 28, re-located to Seymour from New Zealand five-years-ago and has been riding around the bush for most of the time for Seymour trainers.
In his post-race interviews, Parish thanked Shannon Hope and Melbourne Cup-winning jockey for their help and advice since his arrival.
For Parish’s two minutes and 27 seconds in the saddle, he earnt $87,500 as his five per cent share.
