Trainer of the Month – August 2017
PUBLISHED: 20 September 2017
Paul has been in racing for a long time, first proving his riding talent among some of the greatest jockeys in the country. He then switched to training, exploiting the knowledge he gained working with some of the leading trainers he rode for like top KwaZulu-Natal conditioner Alistair Gordon.
Breaking into such a competitive, demanding and complex area of the industry would never be easy but he has persevered and proven that he can maximise the inbred talents of his charges and present them to perform at their best on the track.
In spite of medical difficulties in his yard that hampered his efforts, he was able to field 11 runners during the month, four of which he welcomed back into the winner’s enclosure with another three finishing in the placings – a stout effort worthy of the award.
Well done Paul
