Brandon Breaks Ice In NZ

Now the ball is rolling!

Former Cape-based jockey Brandon Morgenrood rode his first winner in his new home country today.

In search of a fresh start and better opportunities for his young family, Brandon left South Africa in May 2016 and took up a workriding position in New Zealand.

He applied for his race-riding licence  and after a long wait had it granted on Friday 11 August.

The 40 year old SA Jockey Academy graduate is the only South African riding in that country.

Brandon was thrilled to break the ice when steering Aongatete Express to victory in the second race at Te Aroha for trainer Gary Alton.

  1. Ralph Fell. says:

    Good luck. A humble and thoroughly decent man who deserves all the success. And a good jock.

  2. What a week for Phumelela. Punters in Cape Town unable to claim their winnings, yet another meeting at the Vaal cancelled due to lightning(where else in the world does this happen?) and the bipot pool for Jebel Ali being incorrecly posted with no compensation for winning punters who received a lesser dividend. Yes this was a minor centre but there would have been a riot if this happened at Turfontein. It is ironic that Jooste was a board member of Phumelela , his woes are in keeping with the serious flaws in a company that owns a bookmaking right, a television outlet and monopolises SA horse racing. A sad company who cares more about pools and profits than people.
