A family illness prompted Bosson to relinquish his Singapore licence.
Bosson began 2012 riding at Kranji as a sponsored jockey for trainers Bruce Marsh and Mark Walker. He was granted a freelance club licence in June and had his initial six month tenure extended until December 31.
The 31 year-old rode 18 winners during his stay in Singapore and picked up three feature race wins in the G2
Stewards’ Cup, G3 New Year Cup and the Polytrack Mile Championship.
