Cejay Confident For Kempsey After Coffs Win

By Tony Megahey

Diminutive Cejay Graham was born to ride and she takes the momentum of another winner at Thursday’s Coffs Harbour TAB Gold Cup occasion into the Kempsey TAB meeting on Saturday, where she has a full book and several live chances on a six race programme.

The 18-year-old daughter of accomplished country rider Peter Graham has already ridden fourteen winners in a short career, and on Saturday continues a successful combination with in form Jeremy Sylvester. Cejay and her older brother Jesse are apprenticed to Port Macquarie trainer John Sprague, and both have ridden on numerous occasions against their father.

Cejay with a 3.5kg claim, again impressed with a win and placing at “Coffs” and her increasing success continues to create opportunities. “She’s a really capable kid, it’s sure in the family, she’s cool and confident, ridden three winners for me already so I’m happy to put her on anytime,” Sylvester said.

Jeremy is positive enough going into Saturday’s meeting, starting with Dee You See Kay in the Class I, Kempsey Macleay RSL 900m.

“She’s lightly raced, good speed to win her maiden at Tamworth and back in grade from Newcastle, she’ll be competitive,” Jeremy assessed.

He follows up with Loqueteux in the Jockey’s Celebration BM 50.

“I’ve only had him for one run from Adelaide, his strike rate isn’t flash but he’s shown me something and he’ll improve,” Sylvester said.

Jeremy and Cejay’s day winds up with Hellava Girl in the last, the Akubra Hats BM 40.

“Her maiden win at Muswellbrook was real big, she’s a genuine improver, gets back but drawn well, and hopefully can find the right run.”

Cejay also rides Once Piece for Todd Fletcher in the opening event, Smokey Eye for George Woodward in the third race, and Weavered for Joanna Hardy in the fourth.

The track at Kempsey is currently rated a Good 4 with sunny weather forecast for Friday and Saturday.
