Jockey Scott Galloway could get the break he’s been wanting to end a frustrating run of bad luck with four rides for the powerful Patinack Farm stable at Doomben on Saturday.

Sydney trainer John Thompson has called on Galloway’s services for four of the stable’s seven runners with apprentice Timothy Bell required for Patinack Farm’s Galizani in the Group Three Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington.

Jim Byrne and Ric McMahon will share the riding duties on the stable’s other three runners.

Galloway missed most of last year due to three separate injuries and only recently returned from another six-week stint on the sidelines after breaking his foot in a fall at the Gold Coast barrier trials in July.

His last winner was aboard Crosscannons in a restricted race at Doomben on July 6.

He was sidelined for seven months last year recovering from a crushed left foot he suffered in a barrier mishap at Eagle Farm and a further three months following knee surgery after being tossed off a horse going to the barriers.

Brett Killion, Queensland stable foreman foreman for Patinack Farm, believes Galloway has a good chance of ending his horror run.

Killion expects a strong showing from debutante Utilism in the YS Clothing Handicap (1110m) and Pretty Pins in the Bakerbooth Plumbing & Gas Fitting Pty Ltd Handicap (1600m).

Galloway’s other rides for Patinack Farm are Borehole in the ANZA Communications Handicap (1350m) and Mallard in the Mount Alvernia College Handicap (1200m).

He has three other rides at the meeting including Faster Son in the TH Cock Pty Ltd Handicap (1200m).

Killion rated Pretty Pins as the stable’s best Doomben hope and expected a strong showing from Utilism.

“Utilism has had a jumpout against older horses at Beaudesert,” Killion said.

“She’s a nice filly and it’s a toss up who is the better between her and Wolfsburg.

“Wolfsburg made a good impression in her debut to run third to Snipzu and going on that form Utilism should run well.”

Patinack Farm also expects an improved performance from stablemate Husseza when she lines up against Utilism.

“She was three wide and didn’t appreciate the heavy track in her first start when eighth behind Snipzu,” Killion said.

Utilism is a homebred after Patinack Farm’s boss Nathan Tinkler paid $560,000 for her dam Joie More at the 2008 Easter Broodmare sales in Sydney.

Killion was full of praise after Pretty Pins won impressively over 1400 metres on a heavy track at Eagle Farm on October 15.

The three-year-old is bred to run further and winning jockey Byrne believed a race like next year’s Group One Queensland Oaks was within her scope.
