Fourie hits 100 before December as Title Race gathers pace

Richard Fourie hit the 100 mark for the season to date with the whole of December and every meeting up to end of July 2024 to go, to seal what would be a deserved jockeys championship for the seasoned rider.

He is now sitting at 101 winners after a huge day at Scottsville. From the 489 rides is currently on a 20.65% strike rate booting home 5 winners today on True Trojan, Spirit of Abraham, Celtic Beauty, Fairy Tripp and Kupholiwe.

That's 5 wins from the 8 race card. Fourie is one of the most, if not the most,accomplished rider in South Africa currently using his past stint in Hong Kong to good use where the jockey colony is high class and few mistakes are made at that level where weaker jockeys are exposed quickly.

South Africa has no doubt lost some great riders due to emigration or retirement of late and Fourie is taking full advantage of the pick of the rides in the land.
