    Perhaps its time to reflect and NOT have an intake for 2 years. Keep the academy going at its current funding but frankly I reckon that it has become a bit of a production line and even though I accept that at the age of 49, my memory chucks up a plethora of talented names that perhaps one clings onto a bit too much the reality of today is vastly different.

    Greyville mostly runs 12 runner races, similar in PE and Cape Town struggles to get 8 runner races consistently.

    Do we really need as many jockeys as we currently have and do we really need more?
