Clairwood Memories – Six Winners on a Day!

Anthony Delpech rides six winners at Clairwood Turf Club Racecourse

Anthony Delpech takes a look back to the 26th August 1998, where he rode six winners on a day at Clairwood Racecourse.


Clairwood Racecourse (aka “The Garden Course”) was recently voted South Africa’s best track. Read more here on Sporting Post.

Anthony Delpech:

“As mentioned earlier in the week, I’ve had some incredible milestones and achievements at the Garden Course, and on the 26th August 1998, I rode six winners on a day!”

“It was the most winners I had ever ridden at one meeting, and although I fancied my chances, not all of them were favourites on the day.”

“Three of the winners were for the late Michael Airey, two for Alistair Gordon and the final one for the late Michael Roberts. Certainly a memory I will cherish forever!”

Here are the horses’ names and trainers:

SLEW PER SUNSHADE – Michael Airey
ROYAL PURPLE – Michael Airey
POST GRADUATE – Michael Airey
RAKATAK – Alistair Gordon
FINE FEATHER – Alistair Gordon
MY SQUEEZA – Michael Roberts

Anthony Delpech is a three-time South African jockey champion, and four-time winner of the Vodacom Durban July. He rode in Hong Kong for five years, winning many races including five Group 1 races.
