Frikkie Is Back In The Fray Today

The third is off at 13h40

A man who babysat and travelled across the world with the great Horse Chestnut, Frikkie Greyling has his first runner in his comeback as a licenced trainer at Hollywoodbets Scottsville today.

The vastly experienced Greyling, a former jockey who has gone on to work with some of our best conditioners, is now in charge of the Blue Sky Thoroughbreds’ string and trains out of the old Yellow Star Stud.

The daughter of top sire Rafeef is out of the Var Gr2 winner A Womens Way and is expected to need the outing. She is quoted at 14-1 with Hollywoodbets.

Frikkie came out of his time as an apprentice in 1992 and rode until 1998 when weight problems forced a rethink.

He joined Mike de Kock and shortly after Horse Chestnut arrived. Frikkie became the champion’s chief workrider as well as his babysitter.

Frikkie was to travel to Chicago with Horse Chestnut and also traveled to Dubai with Victory Moon and Ipi Tombe.

He later had a stint as a trainer in Dubai in partnership with Dean Maroun before joining Glen Kotzen at Summerveld, where he ran the satellite yard in the off season. He has also since worked for Mike and Adam Azzie and others.

The first race today is off at 12h30.

The third race where Kalonji makes her debut is the Pick 6 opener and is carded for 13h40.
