SA Apprentices Train In UK

Apprentice Tristan Godden turned 20 on Monday, just days after he and fellow appie Eric Ngwane had settled in to an exciting stint at the British Racing School.

The two young men flew out of South Africa last Thursday on the adventure of a lifetime.

There was no news of the trip on the SA Jockey Academy website and no official press release from the institution but the story was carried by the Sunday Times.

Birthday Boy Godden told the newspaper that he was excited at the prospect of learning about British culture and their racing style.

The SA Jockey Academy has partnered with the British Racing School through funding from the Childwick Trust, established in 1985, to benefit people in need.

Godden and the 22 year old Ngwane are the first SA apprentices to be selected and will spend a month at the BRS.
