Trainer relaxed about Derby jockey

Connections of What’s The Story are in no rush to confirm a rider for their colt in the $A2 million Gr.1 Australian Derby.

“It’s easier to wait until after the Rosehill Guineas when the jockeys have sorted themselves out,” co-trainer Stephen McKee said.

What’s The Story had a quiet week after finishing runner-up in the Gr.1 New Zealand Derby and he will travel to Australia four days before the Randwick feature on April 2.

“He’s got the base fitness and he’ll have a couple of decent gallops before he goes over,” McKee said.
