Khan Grabs Four At Greyville

Super Sunday for veteran

Five times SA Champion Jockey Mark Khan is riding with the energy of a man half his age and is fast approaching his 2500 career winner mark.

He rode four consecutive winners at Greyville on Sunday to maintain his purple patch of form in the holiday province.

While only one of his four winners were for his anchor yard of Duncan Howells, Khan appears to have clicked well with the Ashburton operation for whom he enjoys an 18% win strike-rate currently.

His streak started in the second race with Howells’ Mr Greenlight, and then took in the third and fourth events, with Easy Ginger and Special Force, both trained by Lezeanne Forbes.

He rounded off his quartet when booting home Roy’s Magic for trainer Kumaran Naidoo

Watch that ride below:

Khan was out of the saddle for seven years after sustaining injuries in a fall in 2009.

His first Gr1 ride in over 7 years, when he partnered Hero’s Honour for Gary Alexander in the Gr1 SA Derby at Turffontein in May last year, was a winner.

He has ridden 32 winners this term and is on a relatively lowly 13th spot (certainly for his status) with a win strike-rate of 11%.
