Snaith Racing’s fun public poll asking ‘Who is the greatest South African Jockey of all time?’ has attracted plenty of interest.
Jockeys are always an emotive debate.
We all have our favourites, and there are some colourfully dogmatic opinions posted on the Snaith Racing and Sporting Post Facebook pages.
The stats show that on Saturday morning at around 11h30 Michael Roberts leads Jeff Lloyd and Piere Strydom.
There were many interesting comments – including one from this season’s hottest emerging talent in dual Gr1 winning trainer,Adam Marcus.
He said: “Just spoke to my Dad, Basil, and he is of the opinion that Bert Abercrombie was the greatest jockey he has ever ridden against both locally and internationally.”
So that’s a curved ball from one of the nominees!
The Snaith’s poll listed eight great riders:

There are a few we could think of that could make the list in a canter.
