The Gold Circle Jockey Award for the month of June has been awarded to Anton Marcus.
It might be said that Anton gets the best of the rides and he certainly has an advantage to a degree. But one cannot claim that the 44 horses he rode during the month were all superior to the others and his opponents never had a chance.
Of those 44 horses he rode, through his tactical ability and riding talents he steered 12 into the number one box and another 14 into the placings at a winning percentage of just on 28 and an incredible win-place success rate of 60%.
His successes included the Grade 1 Daily News 2000 on the very difficult individual Hawwaam for Mike de Kock and his talent, dedication and professionalism is worthy of acknowledgement with the award this month.
Well done Anton.
