Jockey of the Month – August 2017

PUBLISHED: 20 September 2017

Ashton Arries

It was a competitive month with many riders enjoying multiple successes on the track and all deserve recognition for their talent. Anton Marcus continued to prove his superior talent while the younger and less experienced riders like Serino Moodley and Ashton Arries showed promise of greater things to come in the future.

For their efforts both young riders – Serino and Ashton – deserved acknowledgement of their performances. Both riders managed six winners in the month, just one less than Marcus, but with a superior win-place strike rate of 45% to 38%, Ashton just pipped Serino by the proverbial short head.

Well done to both riders and congratulations to Ashton.
