Racing Has Lost A Good Man

Naval Guard was his favourite horse

The South African horseracing industry lost a good man when Corrie Jooste passed away at the age of 65 after a short illness at the Mulbarton Clinic in Gauteng on Monday morning.

A passionate racing man and owner for many years, Mr Jooste was instrumental in introducing the massively talented Richard Fourie to the SA Jockey Academy and was a family friend of many in horse racing, including Jacques and Hekkie Strydom, as well as the Peters, Karam, Viljoen and Lenferna families.

He was described by an associate as a man who would do anything for most people – humble, to the point, down to earth – a heart of gold – a salt of the earth man.

Corrie Jooste is survived by his wife Karen, son Donovan and daughter Steph.

Our sincere condolences are extended to the family.
