Ngwane Scores At First Meeting

SAJA graduate shows his mettle to stave off Nunes

New arrival Eric Ngwane made a dream start for his new stable at the Champ de Mars on Saturday when booting home a winner at only his second ride.

On the SA racing and breeding sponsored day, the 26 year old Ngwane, a graduate of the SA Jockey Academy, showed great composure and balance when getting former Dean Kannemeyer charge Carlton Heights up to beat Manoel Nunes on All Aboard and win the BSA Souvenir Trophy.

Trained by Amar Sewdyal, the Fort Wood gelding won a cracker in one of the best finishes of the day.

All Aboard, who was slow into stride, shifted in under pressure over the final 100m and raced tightly with Carlton Heights, which, when being ridden with the whip, shifted out of it.

The Sewdyal yard has been without a retained jockey since the departure of Carloz Gomez.
