Jockey of the Month – May 2019
PUBLISHED: 11 June 2019
The Gold Circle Jockey Award for the month has been bestowed on Bernard Fayd’Herbe
Weight problems have limited Bernard’s riding activity for some years but one can always rely on him to get the best out of the mounts he does get. The grandson of legendary jockey Harold “Tiger” Wright, Bernard has inherited much of the talent that made “Tiger” the great rider he was and Bernard’s successes over the years included those on the great Pocket Power that included the thrilling finish when he steered the champion to a joint victory with Dancer’s Daughter in the 2008 Vodacom Durban July.
During the month he was able to secure 23 rides on which he managed to reach the winner’s enclosure on seven with another four filling second place to give him a 50% win-place record.
With his laid-back personality Bernard is very popular in racing circles and his success during the month makes him worthy of the monthly award.
Well done Bernard
