Hey tonyj, I served my “apprenticeship” at Ascot Bulawayo. Do you remember Cool Gambler, Burning Love and later Catagura and Swashbuckler?

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

Jimmy Anderson won the July with Big Charles in 1981, the year Charles and Diana got married. Billy Harvey won with Gondolier in 1985.

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.

Hope everybody has a fantastic day!
