Apprentice jockey Casey Hunter is the latest recipient of the Western Australian Racing Trainer’s Association (WARTA) Encouragement Award.

Hunter, from the Great Southern, is indentured to her father, Paul and is currently spending a few months in Perth with Dan Morton.

Hunter received her permit to ride in January and claimed her best win when piloting Rock Prince to victory in last month’s Roebourne Cup

The WARTA congratulates Hunter on her hard work and wishes her continued success for the remainder of the 2014-15 season
