Muzi Claws On To Lead After Fall

The race for the SA jockey title took another twist and turn at Greyville on Saturday when Winning Form sponsored log-leader Muzi Yeni fell from Fiorella after the filly stumbled in the running of the Gr2 WSB 1900.

Yeni was taken to hospital for x-rays and scans. All tests and scans were clear and he has been discharged with concussion, as well as a swollen hand and knee, and is expected to be off for a few days.

Yeni, currently on 164 winners, leads title holder Lyle Hewitson, who bounced back after kidney stone surgery last week, on 162.

Anton Marcus is in third spot with 158 winners.

Hewitson has six rides at Turffontein today.
