‘EU Can Destroy SA Racing’ – De Kock

'It's a liberty the way they are treating us'


Champion. Trainer Mike De Kock is frustrated

Mike de Kock’s frustrations with the Export Protocols are nothing new.

On the eve of Super Saturday he says that the movement protocols within SA are costing jobs and affecting the business of racing.

Gr1 Daily News 2000 winner Surcharge only arrived last weekend after being stymied by a 2015 vaccination issue.

De Kock says that we have been under suspension for eight years and that our industry will collapse with breeders buckling and going out of business if things are not sorted out soon.

He says he is not going the Mauritius route again in future – too many things can go wrong and it takes too long.

Listen to his chat with James Goodman on the Winning Ways show:

  1. David Ferraris says:

    It is an absolute disgrace the way they are treating SA. Brexit is the new excuse for not having enough time to do the audit on the SA quarantine issue. Everyone is ready back in SA but the team in Europe are too busy dealing with Brexit issues. This is a great excuse and who knows how long they will stall for.

  2. Rian says:

    This has been going on from Ipi Tombi days, and very little has changed
    Why doesnt De Kock send his horses that he buys for the Royal Families straight to Dubai and to Mrs Slacks yard in England,
    Keep those that can win for the carnival or in the E U, and the rest can compete at home

  3. David Ferraris is spot on with his remark that “it is an absolute disgrace …”!

    EVERY person who has a ‘Social Media’ presence needs to post, repost (with “ICYMI” – this article until it eventually gets onto the desk of someone who has some authority to get this sorted!!!
