ONE jockey’s misfortune proved another’s good luck in yesterday’s Listed City of Adelaide Handicap at Morphettville.

Top Adelaide jockey Clare Lindop was stood down from her remaining three rides on the program after suffering a suspected leg injury in a barrier incident on Casino Wizard in the SA Sprint Series Handicap.

That paved the way for Victorian heavyweight hoop Noel Callow to snare the pick-up ride on Phillip Stokes’ classy gelding Dylanson in the $80,000 City Of Adelaide (1400m).

And Callow certainly made the most of the opportunity, producing a gem of a ride to guide Dylanson to a neck win over stablemate Defiant Angel.

Dylanson, coming off the back of a strong third in the Golden Mile at Bendigo on March 21, settled just behind the leaders then showed plenty of strength in a slogging finish to take his earnings past $250,000 from 23 starts.

“It’s pretty nice to get the quinella in a race like that,” Stokes said. “He’ll go to the Lee Stakes now.”

The $150,000 RA Lee Stakes is a Group 3 race over 1600m on May 16.

While disappointed to miss the winning ride, a hobbling Lindop showed her class to be among the first to congratulate Stokes as the winner returned to scale. The extent of Lindop’s injury was unknown.

She had been enjoying a wonderful run of success and is a clear leader on the Adelaide jockeys’ premiership.
