KZN homecoming for Muscutt

The well traveled young jockey Daniel Muscutt has arrived in KZN for a brief break from the European winter and will be gracing the local tracks with select rides in the coming weeks.

Seasoned horseman Peter Muscutt is the KZN assistant trainer to the powerful Brett Crawford yard and his son Daniel will be riding for their stable and Ivan and Darryl Moore’s on Sunday at Scottsville.

The twenty-two-year old has four rides on the eight-race programme, three for Crawford and one for the Moore’s. Daniel has ridden in South Africa as he started in Cape Town early in his career as an apprentice. Muscutt rides in the United Kingdom for trainers James Fanshawe and Marco Botti and is in South Africa for a three-week busman’s holiday. Last season the youngster rode 45 winners including two Listed races. His first ride in a Group One was in America in the Arlington Million where he failed narrowly, flying up to run second, beaten a neck on Fanciful Angel.

Muscutt was also invited to ride for the powerful China Horse Club in 2016 where he rode the winner of the first race at the Clubs prestigious annual raceday in Ordos, Inner Mongolia in China. South African Punters who enjoy British horseracing will be looking forward to seeing the young star in the flesh at Greyville and Scottsville in the coming weeks.
