“I just want to ride on the Coast on Saturdays, I will not be coming to Eagle Farm or Doomben on the Saturdays,” he said.
“If there are mid-weeks at those tracks or elsewhere, I am happy to go to town, but I am happy to just do the Gold Coast on a Saturday.
“I have told everyone that I am happy just to fill in the gaps and I am focussed on the Coast on Saturday, build a base here and ride at a weight I am comfortable with.”
Callow kicks off his Queensland sojourn with Master Baylee in a Benchmark 62 Handicap (1000m) for Deagon trainer Jason Edwards.
Master Baylee is first-up from a break and will come from the inside alley.
He also has six bookings for Saturday at Aquis Park, with two for Heinrich and one for Kelly.
“I need to start off somewhere and then I will head to the Gold Coast on Saturday,” Callow said.
“I will do my best to get a few winners.
“I have not got many good horses back home that I am committed to, so I thought why not come up.”
Callow’s daughter Stacey is working towards following in her father's footsteps and becoming a jockey, likely to make her race riding debut in the near future.
