Trainers Comments

I don’t know if Johnny Hero is the same quality as Smanjemanje, but he always tries and is progressing, he gets better everytime. It is a very talented field this year, but we do have a ticket. I bought a place in Umhlanga many years ago so we stay there and we always have a good time. Win, lose or draw, we are happy. 

Jockey Comments: Coming soon.
