2018 Nov Jockey of the Month copy


Anton Marcus is Gold Circle’s Jockey of the month.

It may be said that Anton gets all the best rides and for him to top the winner’s log for the month is nothing really to get excited about. But, for any jockey to get nearly 50% of his rides across the line first in one month is exceptional and if not a record, then very close to one.

Making the achievement even more remarkable is that it was not just a case of two out of four rides which is well within the scope of any jockey, but during November, in addition to his rides in other centres, Anton partnered 42 horses and steered 19 – 45.24% – into the winner’s box with eight of his other rides finishing in the placings.

That was an outstanding achievement and more than worthy of the award.

Well done Anton.
