On Saturday, 7 April 2018, SA Champion Jockey Anthony Delpech suffered a fall from Majestic Mambo in the Gr1 SA Classic at Turffontein.

He was admitted to Milpark Hospital for tests and overnight observation.

Following the overwhelming number of phone calls, message and enquiries, the Delpech family issued the following statement via Anthony’s agent, Deez Dyanand on Sunday, 8 April 2018.

“The concern, support and care for Anthony has been overwhelming and on behalf of Bonji, Candice and his family, thanks to all for their messages and phone calls – greatly appreciated. Whilst his x-rays are clear, he’s under observation due to pain in his legs and arms. Once the status of his condition is fully determined, I will update the media accordingly. Again, thank you, racing fans.”

We send Anthony and his family our best wishes.

    I have not stopped corresponding with the Operators and the NHRA who license the Operators for over 25 years – only for it to fall on deaf ears ”arrogant OR ignorant” you be the Judge

    Well done Candace sticking it to the powers that be. Without punters no racing however WITHOUT JOCKEYS LIKE DELPECH NO PUNTERS MAKING MONEY. He put it very subtle when he mentioned Majestic Mambo and he said this is a horse that Paul Peter should wrap in Cotton wool. Why are the powers that be not doing that for our Jocks?
