Caserta funeral details confirmed

A funeral service to celebrate the life of Chris Caserta is set to be held next Monday. The 26-year-old jockey was out on a late-night swim at Surfers Paradise when he was caught in a rip and swept out to sea. His body was recovered later by a search team. The service follows memorials that have been held over the last week involving friends and fellow jockeys gathering on the shoreline in both South Australia and Queensland, both states in which he rode in, to say their farewells. Caserta’s funeral is set to be held at midday at St Monica’s Catholic Church in Moonee Ponds for those who are double vaccinated. A wake will then follow at the Moonee Valley Racing Club Committee Room from 1:30pm. Any donations are asked to be sent to the National Jockeys’ Trust.
