Kabelo, who will be under the guidance of National Jockey Coach Robert Moore and South African Jockey Academy Principal Graham Bailey, said he was very excited to be chosen to represent South Africa and was looking forward to the experience.

“When I was told that I was chosen to go to France I was just overwhelmed with excitement and I am really grateful that I was given this opportunity. I am looking forward to this great adventure to represent my country and to all the new experiences there. Hopefully I will come back home with the winner in the bag and I will do my best to make everyone proud. Also, I greatly appreciate everyone who has been behind me the whole way, my family, friends, the Academy and my sponsor Winning Form.  ” Kabelo said.

The 3rd year apprentice has been in good form this season and has achieved an impressive 40 winners and 195 places from 526 rides.

Kabelo also recently secured a sponsorship from Winning Form, and the young apprentice is sure to do the Academy, South African Horse Racing and his Sponsor proud when he competes in France!
