Five Days To The Big One

Happy Birthday to Gavin Lerena

With just five days to go to the Vodacom Durban July, the bread and butter fare continues and racing is at the Vaal today where nine races are carded – the first is scheduled for 12h10.

Jockey Gavin Lerena, who rides Rainbow Bridge in the big race on Saturday, celebrates his 34th birthday today and takes five rides. While his colleagues won’t be dishing out presents, it could pay to include the birthday boy.

Apprentice Tejash Juglall rode his 20th winner on Monday at Flamingo Park and now claims 2,5kgs

Jockeys Chase Maujean and Marco van Rensburg are not riding today.

The false rail has been set at zero on the back straight and 3,5m on the bend, with a 3,5m spur at the 600m mark. It is 6,5m in from the 1600m outside rail to the pull up area.
