Greg Ryan To Pass An Amazing Milestone At Scone (Friday)

By Mark Brassel

On many occasions leading country jockey Greg Ryan does the right thing for punters by scoring aboard short-priced favourites, but he now finds himself an odds-on favourite at Scone this Friday.

Ryan, 51, has a full book of rides on the eight-race program where he can pass a milestone by landing his 3,500th winner.

Ryan - on 3498 career winners - only needs a winning double to achieve the feat in an amazingly short period of time.

Sam Clough OAM, a long-term resident of Cessnock, compiles records for both Robert Thompson and Greg Ryan.

"This is an incredible achievement. Greg started late and has been riding for around 26 or 27 years," Sam explained.

"He trails Robert Thompson (4262) by 764 winners but Robert has been riding for 44 years. Greg went past Jack Thompson (3322) some time ago.

"I asked Greg the other day whether he thinks he'll ever go past Robert and he simply said 'Doubt it - Robert will probably be still riding when I finish in the saddle!'
