Winning Form-sponsored SA Jockey Academy third year apprentice Kabelo Matsunyane flew our flag proudly when he finished in fourth place aboard Egeria, trained by Christophe Plisson, in the Future Racing Handicap at Chantilly Racecourse on Sunday.
Unfortunately Kabelo’s mount in the second Apprentice Race was scratched.
The race was won by Espione, ridden by French apprentice Thomas Trullier.
Matsunyane jetted off to France last Wednesday to contest the Prix Longines Future Racing Stars held at the Chantilly Racecourse.
He travelled under the guidance of National Jockey Coach Robert Moore and South African Jockey Academy Principal Graham Bailey
It has been a terrific first year in the saddle for the young man who only posted his first career winner on Thursday, 7 June 2018 at the Vaal on the Craig Mayhew-trained Heywot.
