Apprentice Kyle Strydom, nephew of champion jockey Piere Strydom, continued in the family tradition when winning on only his second ride in the professional ranks at Hollywoodbets Scottsville.

Riding the gelding Transonic for Dennis Bosch in the last race of the day, Strydom got home comfortably to make a cracking start to his career in the saddle.

A ‘long drink of water’ as the English would say, the tall and thin 18-year-old has a racing pedigree with multiple SA champion jockey, Piere and trainer uncle Jacques Strydom sons of veteran Port Elizabeth trainer Hekkie Strydom.
