Aldo And Grant Fly Out

Jockeys Sprint on 24 August could be a humdinger

The new season starts on 1 September at Sha Tin.

The traditional pre-season carnival will be held on 24 August at Sha Tin and Penfold Park.

The Jockeys’ Sprint is a highlight of the Carnival and the race has been dominated by the ‘Mauritian Magician’ Karis Teetan in recent years.

Grant finished second last year and as Teetan will be in Japan to ride in the World Super Jockeys Series this year the publicity blurb  suggests a new star could emerge in the form of one of the new young faces – the likes of Lyle Hewitson, Regan Bayliss or Alfred Chan, who are participating for the first time.

But have they even heard of the Cape’s own ‘Usain Bolt’, Aldo Domeyer?

Douglas Whyte has been engaged to be the starter.

    Yes this is a bitter sweet moment we’re we have two top jockeys leave this country which I the punter follow when they are riding. Proven fact is that there are no competition now cause these guys set the bar extremely high and most of our senior jocks either retired or sidelined or on holiday and I the punter have to bet on inexperienced riders on good horses and get appalling results. Really shocking!!!!!
