Byrne has had one of the best Brisbane Winter Carnivals of his career after collecting two Group 1 wins and can add another feature race to his Carnival haul.

The premiership winning jockey produced a masterful front running ride on Redzel to win the Group 1 $700,000 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10000 (1200m) at Doomben on May 13 and then produced a well-timed run from back in the field to win on Capital Gain in the Group 1 $600,000 BMW J.J. Atkins (1600m) at Doomben last Saturday.

Byrne then wrapped up the day with a another well-judged ride from the front to lead all of the way on Chocante to win the Group 2 $300,000 Evergreen Turf Brisbane Cup (2200m).

“It’s been a great achievement for me because it is normally pretty difficult during winter carnival time, as jockeys from Sydney and Melbourne come up here and take the cream of the crop of the rides,” Byrne told Racenet.

“But all credit has to go to my manager Cameron Partington.

“He has been on the ball since before the carnival began and he hasn’t stopped doing things for me and chasing rides.”

Byrne has had a long association with Perfect Dare and the pair have combined for three wins from nine outings together, the latest being a win in the $150,000 NRRA Country Championships Qualifier (1400m) at Grafton on February 13.

Perfect Dare has had one run back from a spell and Byrne will be replacing Tegan Harrison who was aboard for his first up third behind Deploy and Dothraki in the Group 2 $175,000 Ascot Green Moreton Cup (1200m) at Doomben on June 3.

Perfect Dare is one of thirty nominations for the Eye Liner Stakes which will have a final field of sixteen and is guaranteed a run after being rated number thirteen in the order of entry with 54kg.

Byrne is also booked to ride the Tony Gollan trained Dee Nine Elle in the Listed $100,000 Sky Racing Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) for the fillies and mares.
