Opie Bosson will know tomorrow morning whether he will ride Sir Slick in Gr II $100,000 Lawnmaster Awapuni Gold Cup at Awapuni next Saturday.
Bruce Herd was all set to replace Opie Bosson in the weight-for-age feature, as per an agreement made by Sir Slick's trainer Graeme Nicholson, but Herd copped a three-day suspension aboard Thee Auld Hussie for careless riding with a round to go in the Steelform Roofing Group Waverley Cup at Waverley yesterday.
Herd is now considering whether or not to appeal the judicial decision and Nicholson is waiting for the Awapuni jockey's call.
