Either a blessing or a curse, the daylight difference in Western Australia and the Northern Territory provides a prolonged opportunity for get-out-stakes in eastern states as punters rush to hammer favorites in the remaining races in the west will in to the night.
Well known and well praised hero William Pike is amongst one of the most popular names when the time comes around, however the relatively unknown Brendon Davis is keen to match strong, in fact his record at Darwin in particular this season is among one of the best strike rates in the country.
Davis, who has won the Northern Territory jockey’s premiership 4 years running has already 24 winners to his name for season 2017/18, 19 of those coming at the Darwin track from just 51 rides, winning at an incredible 37.3% and finding the money in 1 in 2 starts.
Racing again heads back to Darwin this Saturday after the Alice Springs meeting on the 14th of April, with Davis unfortunately ruled out of this weekend’s race day. 34-year-old Brendon Davis has currently 417 wins to his name, accumulating $4,952,718 in prizemoney.
Primarily riding in the top end, the Territory’s leading jockey has also been tested in South Australia and Western Australia, even booking in rides at Perth headquarters Ascot.
