Ramsden In South African until end of year at worst

Joey Ramsden released a statement about his stable especially with his application and acceptance to train in Singapore. He had the following to say to his owners... 

I know there has been a lot of speculation about my future in South Africa and I just want to take this opportunity to reassure my owners that I am here working for you until I get more clarification regarding my visa application in Singapore.

Former Cape champion trainer Joey Ramsden has issued a statement with regard to his future plans:
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I am going to take on the opportunity given to me by the Singapore Turf Club but as is the case with all these big moves, it takes time and patience.

Joey Ramsden

My family, my owners and my staff will be the first to know when we have more concrete plans and dates in place.

At this stage we will be keeping our South African yard/s open until AT LEAST the end of the year.

We are hopeful that export will open in that time and we want to be on the coal face to export our product to an international stage.

Again, as far as we are concerned it’s business as usual or unusual until we know more.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding.
