tonyj my real name is ANTHONY JARVIS (TONY)
I am 63 years old, grew up in Zimbabwe and started racing in 1970 at Borrowdale Park Harare.Have been a colour holder in partnership with my brother since 1989, first horses were trained by the late Danie Burger, thereafter with Brett Warren and more recently Ormand Ferraris.
I am an Accountant but ran my own manufacturing company from 1996 until recently when I retired.
My hobbies are obviously Horse racing and fishing both inland and coastal.
I live in Mulbarton south of Johannesburg.
FOOD & DRINK: a beer every so often and love portuguese food - Peri peri chicken etc.
Mac Interesting comment - Just for interest - I bred a horse that is currently in training in Durban with Belinda Impey . She is called - Amor Ardiente - Which I named after Burning Love as this is translated in French . Burning Love was a great filly . That is a very long time ago.
I never had the chance to go to Ascot ,but remember all those horses mentioned. I left Zim in 1979 but had the pleasure of seeing horses race like Chesterfield,Credit squeeze, Numerator and the Freddy Maisch machines that Ivan Moore and Roddy England used to ride. Jimmy Anderson was riding at the time as well
Morning all!Name is Ryan and I'm 32 years old.I work in the IT industry but been around racing all my life.Had the pleasure of running around Andre Heyn's stable and the Milnerton yard with the likes of Aldo Domeyer,Robert Khati,Devon Ashby,Sihle Cele and Luke Coleman while they were still learning the trade.I remember Richard Fourie was still headboy at the academy.My uncle had a few horses at different stables.
Have a few favourite horses but the stand out race for me was Wolf whistle against Yard Arm with Kevin Shea and Stryker aboard on Summer Cup day.
My all time favourite jock is Bernard and when Garth Puller was around. Always bewildered by all the horse stories especially the wins by Muis Roberts on Mtoto.
