Tellytrack Legend Returns

The young man is back - on crutches

Molly - On crutches,  but that won't sop him!

Molly – On crutches, but that won’t stop him!

Legendary veteran Tellytrack presenter Dave Mollett will make a welcome return to our local horseracing channel. In typical swashbuckling streetfighter style, ‘Molly’, as he is affectionately known, will return with the aid of crutches for the meeting at the Vaal on Tuesday March 17.

The charismatic Yorkshireman was booked off after the J&B Met for knee replacement surgery and his jovial outspoken presence has been missed by those punters who rely on their weekly dose of ‘Molly to fill the wally.’

“It’s been a long haul since I was discharged from hospital on 12 February and it has meant hours of TV, watching the racing and the cricket,” he said this weekend.

According to Mollett, the operation  was ‘more extensive’  than the surgeon expected.

“He said it was one of the ‘worst knees’ he’d seen and he even took photographs for his forthcoming lectures. Isn’t that bloody charming!” said Molly.

He went on to thank all of those that had supported his “Knee Fund”

“We have reached our target thanks to the kind generosity of two leading owners who wish to remain anonymous. My sincere thanks to all the other owners, breeders and punters who have also contributed. It is clear evidence that the sport boasts some wonderful people. With some big races coming up in Joburg, it will be good to get back in the action.”
