Jockey Linda Meech now a mum after the birth of son Anthony

Popular Victoria jockey Linda Meech is celebrating the safe arrival of her newborn son Anthony.

Meech has been out of the saddle since booting home the Stawell Cup winner for her partner, former jockey turned trainer Mark Pegus, in April last year.

Meech and Pegus welcomed little Anthony Wilbur Pegus into the world last week.

Pegus said Meech and Anthony were doing well and the new mum was able to head home from hospital over the weekend.

“Linda and little Anthony Wilbur are going great,” a proud Pegus said.

Plenty of punters will be thrilled for Meech, who was a prolific winner all over Victoria before taking a break from racing.

Meech rode the John and Chris Meagher-trained Pippie to win the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate in the weeks leading up to her time off.
