It does seem like we are missing a few pieces of the puzzle. This rule change in isolation will prove to be ineffective unless...

1 - The SAJA has a recruitment drive for the academy to attract more female apprentices than male.

2 - There is a drive currently to attract female jockeys from other countries.

3 - There are other plans in place to promote the objective of achieving X number of female jockeys within 5-7? years.

The proposed rule change is going to be problematic - presently, it will benefit one female jockey who secures ample mounts and winners to sustain herself in the saddle without 1.5kg allowance. Ironically, the male jockeys in the bottom quartile of the log can certainly do with receiving the 1.5kg allowance to take their careers in the saddle above the breadline.

.....some very valid points here.... but if those that find themselves battling for rides however have sufficient talent and the right attitude need better representation to be marketed accordingly.....there were some okes that now ride at the top end of the table that at one time were not at all marketable because of poor perception and with a change in attitude and the right marketing are the best.....:whistle:

I do no agree that female jocks should get an allowance - as mentioned this is one of the few 'sports' where they can compete on an equal footing - if they were all to ride with 'soft hands' and get the best out of their mounts by virtue of the fact that they are 'female', one could argue that the males should actually be getting an allowance - so best just do away with any 'advantage' - imo

......agree or not....the only way we get more "soft" hands into the game and stay in is to offer an incentive....as your mate Elvis will know that it is not easy for girls in the game.....apart from the "political" issues I intend to embark on I will also have to engage in "security" to keep the other horny little shIts from corrupting my project.....:lol:

.....SAJA was once a pristine establishment revered globally and produced or "unlocked" potential and produced the very best jockeys we have ever seen.....however we have seen the challenges brought about in the period of the "transformation" drive that was very detrimental to continue producing much more of that quality....for this reason some of our better riders went the "work rider" route....as many that went to the academy may have had the right physical attributes but were there for the wrong reasons... now if someone has the right passion, work ethic for the hard slog yet is able to ride without having to be taught is by far a much better option imvho...;)

Good for Rachel Venniker. She don't need it so Bonus when she rides. She just needs to control her weight.

As for other female jocks are there any waiting in the wings or waiting to come out of retirement? Or is this a rule for one person?

Pathetic decision and again proving why SA has no idea with regards to Handicapping.

Rachel (not her fault) now has the rest of her career to look forward with a 1.5kg allowance (in SA)

I would love to ask her how she feels not being regarded an EQUAL.......

I think I know the answer.

.....:ohmy:.....no pleasing the so called number crunchers either.....Mr Posh Fish would not like to engage any talented claiming apprentices either as they also f@ck with the handicap....FYI females are handicapped but not on ability..... but by the attitude that their testosterone laden counterparts have for them.....it is a very big handicap not to belong to that club .....:whistle:

......well it would seem that the "work rider" route is also now under SAJA and have made enquiries accordingly.....:unsure:

@ Muhtiman

The NHRA may have a plan and good intentions with the 1.5kg sex allowance, however, their lack of communication around this matter leaves us in limbo – attracting more questions and head scratching.

Imho this proposed rule would NOT have had A notable impact on SA Racing over the past 3 years and given the current jockey population and profile, it’s unlikely to have a meaningful impact in the next three years. Venniker will benefit together with the connections of her mount. A rule change that appears to be unnecessary when viewed in isolation.

NHRA needs to shed some light.

It would be great if we had more female jockeys in SA.
Riders like Lisa Prestwood, Chantal Moys and a few others had their supporters.
There was a common clique amongst punters that when a female rider went to the front, the male jockeys were too focused on her rear view to bother trying to get past. :lol:

......I will soon see the light if the SAJA boys are in the loop..... or if certain people are once again trying to grandstand instead of doing what they are being paid to do....you are correct.... what is the real motive for this change.... as it is far too late for all the girls that have chucked it in.....:blink:
