Andre Nel has been appointed trainer to the Plattner Racing operation, filling a post left vacant since Sabine Plattner split with Yogas Govender over six months ago, writes Michael Clower.

Nel, 36, is a long-serving Plattner employee.

He worked in the yard at Yzerfontein for four years before spending the next four in the Summerveld satellite yard. He then switched to the breeding side and was manager of the La Plaisance Stud near George for more than five years.

He said: “I got my licence just over a fortnight ago and my first runners could possibly be at Durbanville on the 23rd but more probably on the 26th. We did nominate horses for this Saturday’s meeting but it doesn’t now look as if any of them will run.”

His initial entries included the useful I Am The Law and Ma Choix who won on her last appearance (on J & B Met day) as well as three newcomers. Ma Choix has been entered for the Settlers Trophy on the 26th.
