Former SA champion jockey S’manga Khumalo set himself up for a likely three month suspension when, in an apparent moment of distraction – or madness – he failed to ride his mount out in the third race at Fairview on Friday.
Despite passing the favourite Seattle Light in the final stages, Khumalo failed to make any effort to push his mount to the line and Seattle Light came right back to nail him on the post.
But there is good news for frustrated backers of Captain Courteous.
In the spirit of “fair play” to their loyal customers, HOLLYWOODBETS has decided to pay out ALL straight win bets on CAPTAIN COURTEOUS – number 10 in Fairview race 3.
Hollywoodbets is in the process of manually paying out these bets for account holders.
Please speak to your local branch manager if you have a cash ticket.
