Marwing Returns Home

Rode 1 wiinner in 8 rides

Former SA champion jockey Weichong Marwing has been released from his commitments to the Gilbert Rousset yard for the remainder of the 2018 Mauritius racing season.

Weichong Marwing – injury woes

Marwing has suffered from recurring back pain and will return home to South Africa shortly.

He rode one winner – Brass Bell at the first meeting – in only 8 rides for the Rousset yard.

One of our most accomplished and experienced jockeys, Marwing previously rode on the island for the former Koon Stable in 1991 and also at the international meetings of 1997, 2006 and 2007.

The 47 year old was SA Champion Jockey in 1996/7 and rode 6 winners on the Turffontein card on 1 January 1992 – a feat he repeated at the Vaal on 8 April 2004.

The veteran Rousset has not released the name of a replacement. He hass a powerful string and  has been training for 30 years and was champion in all of 1987, 2009 -11, 2013, 2016, and was champion last year with 40 winners.
