Six Gun Greeff Takes Charge!

Muzi edges up to within two winners of Lyle

Trainer Alan Greeff marched relentlessly towards yet another East Cape Championship title as he saddled six of the eight winners on the Fairview card on a memorable Monday at the final East Cape meeting of the 2018/19 season.

Alan Greeff –  finished season with a flourish

Five of the Greeff winners were ridden by Greg Cheyne, and the combination showed their dominance as their win strike-rate averages at 26%.

Greeff has saddled 177 winners – versus 148 last term. Wayne Agrella rode the sixth Greeff winner.

In the race for the SA jockey title, Muzi Yeni chipped away at defending champion Lyle Hewiston’s lead to shrink the deficit to just two winners with two days remaining.

Muzi won the last on Bushy Park for Duncan McKenzie.

With weather forecasters varying in their predictions as to the volumes of rain, the Cape Town area was expecting showers on Monday evening and on Tuesday morning. This could have an impact on the Kenilworth meeting, with Hewitson being favoured by some better quality rides.

    How ironic when i had six winners on the card not even a month ago not a mention of it . Suppose it is only Flamingo we don’t count.

    1. Editor says:

      Hi Cliff
      No excuses – that outstanding performance should have been covered – and it may well have been in Short Heads.
      Its all about capacity. Champions Season has dominated since May
      Our personality for this week is a Kimberley trainer.
      We were the only publication to cover the Northern Cape Awards last season.
      Thanks for the observation.

    Mr editor I must agree with Mr Miller …selective coverage. Speaking about champions season and deflecting the point doesnt cut it . Six winners anywhere in the world especially if its our very own trainers or jockeys should be given airtime and appreciation. Sometime back Morne Winaar rode 4 winners for the first time in his career if im not mistaken , he is a senior jockey who has been riding for many years in the cape nut tellytrack was quick to show dettori’s four timer at ascot ,yes show that becoz it was a special moment but atleast give our local heroes some recognition too … it is for that reason we always take the back seat , we tend to give precedence to the rest of the world and take pur very own for granted ..

    I’m sorry Ed. Absolutely disgraceful.

    We readers want a video of you doing 20 push ups as punishment

    We’ll consider any further action only after we’ve seen the video

    1. Editor says:

      Push ups are a bit advanced, Brian
      Sitting in the corner with a dunce hat is more appropriate

    While we are all on the bandwagon about the bad job Sporting Post is doing perhaps I can highlight another omission that will have far reaching consequences for racing and is receiving zero attention. – Mark Currie has resigned from the Phumelela board citing conflicts of interest. In my opinion he was conflicted the second he accepted a position within racings structures, and over the years he has had many. He is not unique in this regard. I suppose when viewing the conflicts around him on various boards, he must have thought I’m not as conflicted as my Steinhoff tjommies. Bernard was tight with the boeties, Markus and Chris, so that obviously made everything acceptable. Who would have thought that being outside of covenance involving a few rand would break the friendship?

    While we on the bandwagon, what is happening with Kenilworth racing? Is Bob the solo Chairman now? What is happening with Phumelela? All these rumours about not being able to pay and needing knights in shining armour to save them urgently? Please God let these rumours be true.

  5. Brian says:

    No, no no Ed.

    Push ups

    you don’t choose the punishment

  6. I wonder if Mr. Editor is “well in” with the allotted 20 push-ups ?

    Kindly remember his Merit Rating with be increased on Thursday by 10 points, without doing a single push-up !

  7. José says:

    I totally agree With Cliffie Miller, it’s a disgrace how teletrack and the various media publication don’t even mention Cliffie, s success what a feat man with the stock that you get which is mostly rejects from other stables, well done Sir, I personally think you can hold your own anywhere is this country!

  8. Brian says:

    Only one way to find out William. Let’s see the Ed in full cry
