MATURE aged apprentices used to be a rarity but in today’s climate they are more common and one of the more mature riders is about to launch his riding career in Tasmania.

Jacques Luxe is apprenticed to top Victorian trainer Mick Price but he has been placed on loan to talented Tasmanian trainer Vicki Rhind who is excited about the prospects of having a mature four-kilogram claiming apprentice in our midst.
