Harvey aims for Hyperion
Harvey aims for Hyperion

Champion jockey Paul Harvey could return in time for next month's $125,000 Hyperion Stakes (1600m) and $125,000 Strickland Stakes (2000m) meetings.

Harvey's 2014 misfortune continued earlier this month when he fractured a shoulder at Pinjarra.

The injury ruled him out of the Roma Cup meeting and Saturday's Belmont Sprint card.

The 44-year-old missed out on the ride aboard Perth Cup winner Black Tycoon when he was replaced by Damien Oliver.

"Paul has had a bad run with suspensions and injuries," Harvey's long-time racing manager Dale Verhagen said.

"The shoulder injury has kept him out for three weeks already and it could be another fortnight until he is back."

Despite Harvey's spate of injuries and suspensions, he has ridden 27 winners and 38 place- getters - a winning percentage of 16 per cent - from 172 rides this season.
