Johnson to ride Kiwi Oaks hope

Savvy Coup

Chris Johnson has been confirmed as Savvy Coup’s rider in the Gr.1 Australian Oaks (2400m).

Co-trainer Michael Pitman said Hugh Bowman had been approached for the mount, but he has opted to partner the Chris Waller-trained Unforgotten in Saturday week’s classic at Randwick.

Johnson has an outstanding record with Savvy Coup, who will be on a flight to Sydney on Wednesday, having ridden her in four of her five wins including a victory in the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m).
