Lloyd rewrote the Racing Queensland history books when he rode seven winners at the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday and he will be hoping that his extraordinary winning run continues at Eagle Farm on the weekend.

The former South African jockey set a new record for the most winners in a day at a Queensland metropolitan meeting, overtaking Mick Dittman’s record of six winners and a second at Eagle Farm in November 1977.

While Lloyd’s outstanding performance was a Queensland record, he recalled that he had previously ridden seven winners in a day in South Africa.

“I did ride seven winners in a day in South Africa twice earlier in my career,” Lloyd told AAP.

Five of Lloyd’s seven winners on the marathon twelve race Sunshine Coast program were for Gold Coast trainer Toby Edmonds and were Linlithgow (Race 5), I Am The Sculptor (Race 8), Biantic (Race 10), Sweet Shamrock (Race 11) and Plucky Girl (Race 12).

Lloyd’s other winners were Sista Act (Race 6) for Eagle Farm trainer Liam Birchley and Jill’s Charm (Race 9) for Sunshine Coast trainer Gary Duncan.

Lloyd’s career looked to be in jeopardy three years ago when he suffered a stroke but he recovered and returned to riding to claim the 2015 – 2016 Brisbane jockey’s premiership.

Baker is hoping for an improved run from Coolring in the George Moore Stakes after the six year old was beaten six lengths when eighth to Too Good To Refuse in the Listed $100,000 Keith Noud Quality (1200m) at Eagle Farm on November 19 and he has selected the right jockey to do the job.

“He prefers rock hard tracks and the track was a little shifty for him that day,” Baker told Racing Queensland News.

“If he gets the right conditions he’s more than capable of turning his form around.”

Coolring is listed as one of the outsiders of the George Moore Stakes field at $20 with Ladbrokes.com.au who have the Desleigh Forster trained Too Good To Refuse as the $3.10 favourite.

Lloyd will also team up with Baker on the unbeaten three year old Winning Rupert who is the $1.45 favourite to keep his winning record intact in the $100,000 McInnes Wilson Lawyers QTIS 3yo Plate (1200m).

Baker campaigned Winning Rupert in Queensland during the Winter Carnival and after winning on debut in a 1000m two year old Plate at the Sunshine Coast on April 23 went on to win the Group 2 $175,000 Moet & Chandon Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben three weeks later.

Winning Rupert’s main Summer goal will be the $2m Magic Millions 3yo Guineas (1400m) at the Gold Coast on January 14.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!|
