“There is nothing compared to the excitement and adrenalin rush of owning a winning South African Bred Racehorse!”

I am confident that even the most discerning of international buyers will be impressed by the exceptional quality and class of the South African Racehorse.

My vision behind this web site is to introduce you to our phenomenal bloodlines and offer my assistance in selecting and purchasing South African Yearlings and pre-training them in preparation for export to race in Hong Kong. It is also possible to buy proven horses with a merit rating of 95 and up. Obviously horses with exposed form will be a little more expensive, however I can also assist you in this area.

With a racing career that has spanned over 3 decades, I have not only gained a wealth of experience, but have achieved “Champion Trainer” status three times! Through the years I have trained many Group 1, 2 & 3 winners and was responsible for pre-training the 5 time winning Class 1 South African Bred “Asia Rising” currently racing in Hong Kong.

At present I am based at the Randjesfontein Training Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng, where I have 54 horses in training.

I am personally known to every SA Jockey either riding or who has ridden in Hong Kong, namely Bartie Leisher, Basil Marcus, Dougie Whyte, Weichong Mawing, Felix Coetzee, Anton Marcus and Glynn Schoefield, all of whom have ridden many winners for me over the years.

My love of the horse and the racing industry in general was nurtured from a young age by my father, who was an ardent race-goer in his time. As a young man of only 15 years old I started my riding career as an apprentice jockey with a Zimbabwean Trainer. Unfortunately I had to give up riding as I grew too tall and in so doing developed a weight problem. At the tender age of 21, I took a huge step forward when applying for my own trainers license and was Champion Trainer by the age of 23.

I have enjoyed an illustrious training career over the years, notching up the Zimbabwe Trainer's Championship three times, and training not less than 3  Castle Tankard Winners (the most prestigious race in Zimbabwe). I re-located my training yard to South Africa in 1984, and have enjoyed great success with numerous Group 1, 2 & 3 winners.

 

I pride myself as an experienced horseman and a good judge of “horse flesh”, able to pick potential winners as yearlings and train them on to become winners.

I run a very professional setup, overseeing all aspects of my training facility personally.

Over the years, South Africa has stamped its authority in the world of sport. It has produced Champion athletes like “The Big Easy” - Ernie Els; The Proteas - smashing cricketers; The Boks - Rugby World Cup Holders; Michael Roberts, Basil Marcus, Dougie Whyte - to name a few Champion International Jockeys, world class trainers like Mike De Kock, Tony Millard and David Ferraris and our Equine Hero's. The common denominator is that they are all proudly South African with hearts of lions, toughness of rhinos and filled with energy and enthusiasm to perform at their best.

Owning a Thoroughbred Racehorse is the ultimate thrill afforded to mankind. Known as the “Sport Of Kings” as it strives to combine nobility and sportsmanship in an entirely unique way, while the “Horse” is a majestic creature with a nobility of spirit which enables them to be trained into superb and courageous athletes.

Race a South African Thoroughbred in Hong Kong” highlights the fact that the South African Horse Racing Industry has established itself as a source of “Champions” and top stake performers worldwide, and boasts both Equine and Human success stories.

I would like to offer my knowledge, experience and professionalism to prospective foreign buyers in the hope that I can assist you in purchasing a top South African Bred Racehorse, that can go on to win you prestigious races in Hong Kong.

I place a particular value on  productive relationships with clients and will approach my task with the highest commitment.
