Sean Casey is a regular visitor to Broome for the racing season but this year he has a new travelling companion.

The Ascot trainer will be joined by his son, apprentice jockey Jake, who commenced life in the saddle just last month.

The teenager, a former accomplished showjumper, has four placings from 19 rides including two at Albany and one at Carnarvon.

A maiden win at Broome’s opening meeting of the season on Saturday looms large for the young rider.

He takes five mounts for his father: There’snonesosassy, Garance, Orosasso, Pribyl and Productivity.

Productivity, who will contest the Landmark Broome Handicap (1300m), has yet to win in five attempts at the track.

However; the veteran eight-year-old holds form with a last-start win at Leinster over 1600m on April 27.

Pribyl looks to have strong claims in the Cygnet Bay Pearls Handicap (1200m) and will strip fitter at his second run in.

The Bletchley Park gelding ran second to Bintang Bob, beaten a neck, when racing at Leinster last month.

Orosasso has one win from eight appearances and that was at Broome last season when she demolished rivals.

The four-year-old Due Sasso mare led from start-to-finish and put a gap of four lengths over her nearest rival.

She tuned up for her return in the Kimberley Pharmacy Services Handicap (1100m) with a trial third behind Terkel at Belmont.

Terkel franked the form when a top winner at Belmont three weeks ago,

Orosasso will carry 52.5kg with Casey’s claim, the lowest in her career, and jumps from barrier seven in the field of 10.

Garance has been freshened after a successful Geraldton campaign and will have admirers in the Paul’s Birthday Handicap (1000m).

The Surtee filly won twice at Geraldton and is drawn to get the run of the race from barrier three.

There’snonesosassy opens proceedings for the father and son combination in the Zoo Bar and Cafe Maiden (1000m).
