Trainer of the Month – March 2017

PUBLISHED: 05 April 2017

Paul Lafferty

His engaging, positive and humorous outlook on life will have helped him through a difficult health problem during the past year and many will say that being with him is “a Laff a minute”.

But behind the smiles and the jokes is a man who takes his various roles in the racing industry very seriously, involving himself in administrative affairs for the benefit of the sport as a board member of Gold Circle.

Also among his collection of “activity hats” are those as an on-course presenter and co-presenter of the racing programme Winning Ways.

But it is the exploitation of his training skills, honed over many years, where his main focus lies and his dedication was rewarded during the month when topping the trainer list with nine winners and 11 placings from just 29 runners – a win-place strike rate of just on 70% giving his followers a return of R74.60 on a R1 win bet on each of his charges.

Well done Paul
