The Gold Circle Owner Award for the month has been awarded to Leslie Logan.

A modest venture into the world of thoroughbred racehorse ownership four years ago, when taking a share in a horse owned by a friend, quickly blossomed into an involvement in 57 horses racing with a number of trainers in KwaZulu-Natal, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

For businessman Leslie, the sport of thoroughbred racing brought the family a lot of enjoyment and considerable success with 43 winners and many places including four visits to the winner’s enclosure during the month under review. But with a string of horses that size it demanded a considerable amount of involvement in time and money and business pressures led to the scaling down of the operation.

“My one son really loves the horses and is keenly involved but for me the business pressures are too heavy and I have only visited Summerveld twice. I have cut back considerably to 12 or 13 horses but because of my son I can see I will probably being buying more in the future” he said.

Congratulations and well done Leslie
