    It’s Alright Superman …Take the Suspension and Come back Ready to win the July

  2. Jedri says:

    This suspension of jockeys is totally ridiculous i mean there is objections in races where it is clear that they bumped each other then stipes overruled it and result stands so in my opinion stipes is a waste of time as well as suspension of jockeys

  3. Darren says:

    Outcome of Inquiry into interference Marcus caused , whilst riding Chantyman to victory on 1June ?

  4. Brad says:

    This is ridiculous, he did not interfere with any horse . But maybe if Anton bothers to do interviews after winning races and gets off his high horse , I won’t feel sorry for him.

  5. Jay Akkiah says:

    I fully agree wiyh Jedre

  6. Mayen Naidoo says:

    No enquiry on Marcus on his mount Rainbow Bridge. He forced Lady in Black inwards

  7. Devan says:

    I agree with jedri, my esperience in racing .Stipes generally make decisions in their favour.

  8. Ronny says:

    I made that same point here on sporting post last year but my comments were blocked

    by anyways, that’s life

    1. Editor says:

      Anton gave us reasons at the time why he sometimes misses the post-race interview, Ronny
      A jockey is under no obligation to say anything after the race on TV

  9. Prasheen Harrimohan says:

    I like Anton but I sometimes feel he doesn’t like being interviewed by Dee’s eventhough deez is the most loved presenter in racing today also Marcus doesn’t ever be confident on any of his rides the only time he rates a horse is after it wins. I would like to see the likes of Kennedy getting better rides cos his as honest as they come.

  10. Kevin kitchin says:

    When does Markus start his suspension?

  11. Logan says:


  12. Rajen Govender says:

    Superman is also human…

  13. V says:

    Anton is human. I mean chimichuri run in the computerform hung towards the inside and lost a winning chance,, front and centre lost a winning chance and rainbow bridge lost a winning chance … All grade 1 race favourites .. All in the space of a month. Hes only human isnt he..
