The Sporting Post regrets to report the passing of longstanding Cape owner Mrs Mary Zoccola.

Mrs Zoccola won the Met in 1981 with Queen’s Elect.

She raced a number of very decent horses over many decades, including Django, Gamlingsgay and Gin Rummy.

Our condolences are extended to her family and friends.

Full report to follow.
