Five For Barend

New racecourse proves a happy hunting ground

Jockey  Barend Vorster rode five winners on the eight-race card on Wednesday  at the opening of the new Murray Bridge racecourse outside Adelaide in South Australia.

Vorster moved to Australia recently from Singapore where he is the stable jockey for trainer Tony McEvoy.

Barend Vorster – great day

McEvoy saddled six winners, five with Vorster in the irons. His sixth winner on the day was ridden by Raquel Clark.

McEvoy said the meeting was one he had targeted with a number of nice horses and things all fell into place on a memorable day.

“Very rarely do the cards fall like this,” McEvoy told broadcaster Racing.com after Diplomatic Measure brought up the trainer’s sixth winner.

“I have been to the races many times with some really good chances thinking we’ll win a number of races and you don’t normally get the luck, and things don’t fall into place.

“But Barend has been faultless today. My staff have presented my horses faultless, and the track has given them a chance to do the rest.

“So really exciting. A very special day.”

    Congrats Barend. As a young rider in SA and in Singapore, we had no doubt that you would excel.
