His Borrowdale Park yard will remain in operation.

Gokhan said:“The first load of horses are leaving on 14 December. The second draft will be  leaving two weeks later. I’m taking down 25 of the horses currently in my yard.”

“I have been allocated 40 stables at the Vaal and will be in Johannesburg, permanently, from January 2017.

“My yard in Zimbabwe will be ‘downsized’ significantly to about 25 horses from 80 horses. This yard might eventually close but that depends on the economy of the country.”

The horses destined for the Vaal include both raced and unraced stock.
