Owner of the Month – March 2018
PUBLISHED: 18 May 2018
The Gold Circle Owner Award for the month has been bestowed on Roy Moodley
For a leading KwaZulu-Natal businessman involved in security, the phrase “there is safety in numbers” could well apply to Roy who has certainly not skimped in building one of the biggest racing operations in the country.
With scores of horses in his racing string that are spread among a number of trainers, the charismatic character has bred many of the horses he races at his stud in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and has invested in quality overseas stock to boost his operation.
Commenting on the success of his runners, Roy quipped: “They must start winning Grade 1’s. They’ve won Grade 3’s but now they need to win the big ones.”
He said once the programme has been released his trainers will begin formulating their racing plans and when asked about potential big race contenders including the Vodacom Durban July, Roy named two of his Australian-bred horses – Roy Had Enough and Roy’s Riviera – that he races from the Frank Robinson stable.
Both have shown promising ability and along with his many others runners, we wish them great success.
Well done Roy
