Ex Kzn Jockey off to Good Start in Australia

Donovan Dillon, the ex Kzn hoop, made a successful start to his Australia career as he bagged two wins from two rides at Musswellbrook on Sunday and his third overall in the country.

The South Africa moved over to Australia with his family to start up his riding career after leaving the Kzn jockey ranks in June.

He rode the winner of the first and fourth races. Both winners were for trainer Paul Messara in handicap events on their TAB Ladies Day event.

This was Dillon's third winner in 10 rides. His first Australian winner was on October 3. None of his rides has been outside the top 5 so far and 4 have been placed.
