Owner of the Month – August 2018
PUBLISHED: 04 October 2018
The Gold Circle Owner Award for the month has been bestowed on Fozia Ebrahim
Fozia races her horses with the help of husband Yaseen who has a passion for the sport of racing that has endured from his childhood years – a passion that included winning his first Place Accumulator payout of R3.20 when he was just seven years of age.
Fozia became an owner in 1998 through a friend and since then has, with the support of Yaseen, had many horses with trainers in KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape and Gauteng and won many races. They operate on a basis of rotating their racing stock by culling each year and replacing with new blood to maintain a manageable stable of about 10 horses in training.
One of the best horses Fozia has owned was King Of Corn that won a number of races under Richard Fourie from the Mike Robinson stable in the Cape including three races in a row. During the month under review, Fozia had a double at Scottsville with Dyno Man and Mashari which, according to Yaseen, was a lifelong ambition and “a dream come true.”
Well done Fozia – and Yaseen
