Two years ago on 7th April 2018, my life changed forever. This was the day I fell off Majestic Mambo during the SA Classic at Turffontein.

Anthony Delpech writes that sometimes in racing, there are decisions you make and you get away with.This was one split decision I made, and it ended my career.

Anthony provides a personal look back to SA Classic Day two years ago, and the tragic fall that ended his riding career.

    In life there are many what ifs, curve balls and challenges. However, these are secondary when one has overcome them and path a new future which Anthony has embraced.
    Anthony, your recovery and career would make for interesting reading and your life experiences would support many others who encountered hardships and challenges. There is a lot of motivation in your experiences and most important of all, we still have your wisdom.
    Thanks for a wonderful ride and may the powers at Gold Circle especially Greyville and Scotsville enlist your services which would be great for the industry and its patrons.
    Hopefully, Hollywood could get you to occupy the seat of review at the above venues.
    How refreshing that would be!!

    One of the best jockeys in south Africa Sadly missed but family comes first and your decision was 100%

  7. Preston says:

    The best way to describe Anthony Delpech apart from being a incredible talented jockey , was he was an person who commanded respect and who in turn was a very respectful person to the general public and to the elites who he rubbed shoulders with. He was able to bridge the gap between the ordinary punters and speculative owners. I will always remember you for the ride on Classic Flag.God bless you and your family Anthony,
