Another hits the talent drain

Reigning SA Champion jockey Warren Kennedy flies out of South Africa on Monday en route to a new life and new challenges in New Zealand.

Kennedy discusses his imminent transfer to New Zealand, his thoughts on Paul Peter’s decision to resign his trainer licence, not spending enough time with his family, and whether or not he will ever ride in South Africa again on In The Box Seat. Watch the show at the end of this editorial.

Ex-patriot South African jockey Donovan Mansour put Kennedy in touch with the right people in New Zealand. Mansour, a former champion jockey of Mauritius, had a career-ending injury while riding in New Zealand.

The advantage of immigrating to New Zealand is the possibility of attaining a ‘critical work visa’ which enables a jockey to not only ride in New Zealand but also to travel  over to to Australia to ride.

Enjoy the show – and cheers Warren!
