Group One performer Forever Yin has a new home after being transferred to the in-form Craig Cross stable.
After doing all his racing for Ellen Bartley, winning five of 15 starts including a Vicbred Super Series semi-final last season, the three-year-old went to Sydney after winning at Junee last month.
Bartley admitted it was a tough decision but with the heats of the NSW Derby coming up thought it was in the best interests of the horse.
"It's probably better for him to be up there for the Derby and Bathurst (Gold Crown)," Bartley said.
"He doesn't have to travel as much plus the experience with a big stable.
"He needs to learn a lot more than what we can teach him here as in a big stable he'll be forced to be a racehorse.
"As much as it was a very hard decision to send him away you also have to give them every chance."
Forever Yin is the first emergency in a $14,280 three-year-old race at Menangle on Saturday night after missing the hot field by $70.
The heats of the NSW Derby are on February 29.
JORDAN Seary took out the Drivers Invitational Race at the Orange Carnvial Of Cups meeting on Sunday.
Racing at Bathurst, the 19-year-old steered Catch A Moment to success for Amanda Turnbull.
Seary was thrilled to be selected in the series, alongside fellow Riverina reinsmen Peter McRae and Blake Micallef, and to win it was even better.
"It was good to get an invite to go up there," Seary said.
"He seems like a really nice horse, he won the Southern Cross in South Australia as a three-year-old so I knew he was going to be handy."
Seary and Catch A Moment stormed down the outside to score by 5.8 metres with Micallef second on Firestorm Red for Steve Turnbull.
ALBURY will hold its Carnival Of Cups meeting on Friday night.
A strong field has been assembled for the $15,300 feature, the Albury Pacers Cup.
There is a strong mix of local and interstate hopefuls.
Clara Clare is also out to defend her crown and has drawn barrier eight for Albury trainer Ian Livermore while two-time winner Brallos Pass has drawn 10.
The String Of Pearls for three-year-old fillies is another strong feature race on the card however there were insufficient nominations for the Albury Derby and the Jack Adams Memorial for two-year-olds.
The club hopes both races can be rescheduled.
ULTRA consistent pacer Gee Gee Blinxs broke through for her first career win.

Coming off a second in a Evolution Series race at Menangle last time out, the daughter of Bettors Delight clocked a last half of 55.6 seconds to finally go one better and won by 15.2 metres.
