Singapore-based ex-pat Danny Beasley has retired from race riding to take up a position as foreman for trainer Dan Meagher at Kranji.

Beasley called time on his riding career in July and earlier this week was granted a stable supervisor’s role with Meagher by the Malayan Racing Association.

The winner of 19 Group One races including the 2003 Golden Slipper aboard Polar Success and six Group One races on Grand Armee, Beasley moved to Singapore in 2007, and with the exception of 2015 when not licensed, rode with considerable success.

“It was always my plan around my early forties that I’d be looking at a change of path,” Beasley told RSN927.

“I’m 42 now so to give myself an opportunity to do something, I’ve decided to hang up the boots.”

Beasley said he was taking on the role with Meagher to see whether it may lead to him becoming a trainer at a later stage.

But he said there was no set plan.

“My position is a foreman’s role and I’ll do this and see where it takes me,” he said.

“If I feel like it leads into a training career then that’s something I’ll consider.”

Beasley is happy in Singapore, calling it home.

“I’ve married a Singapore girl and we’ve got two little kids so this is where I see my future,” he said.

“Singapore is a great place to live. It’s very safe and a great place to raise kids and a really good lifestyle.

“It’s close to home also so if I do need to get back to Australia for a special occasion I can always get back quite easily.”
