Aldo’s Back!

Rides World Radar in Gr2 feature on Saturday

Aldo Domeyer is to make a surprise return from Hong Kong and he will be in action at Kenilworth on Saturday where he has four rides.

The top jockey returns to the Cape this week for the birth of his child.

He rode 4 winners from 46 rides for gross stakes of HK$5,544,970 in Hong Kong this season.

Michael Clower reports on www.goldcircle.co.za that Alan Greeff has booked him for ante-post favourite World Radar in the Western Cape Fillies Championship and he has two mounts for Andre Nel – Congo Compaq in the mile maiden and Vikram in the MR90 Handicap.

When Domeyer did so well in his first few months in Hong Kong that he was offered a contract to return for the current season many feared that he had been lost to South African racing for good. Jockeys can earn a fortune in Hong Kong and Grant van Niekerk (who rode a double at Sha Tin on Sunday) has spoken of the thrill of riding in front of 50 000 people at meeting after meeting.

Before he left in April Domeyer was first jockey for Candice Bass-Robinson who said: “I am bringing down Stuart Randolph for my runners this Saturday. Aldo will again be riding for me in the future but it depends on how long he is going to stay.”

The Sporting Post has learnt that former Champion Domeyer has been retained by Drakenstein Stud.
