Alan Greef had six winners at Fairview yesterday, five of them ridden by Greg Cheyne, and in the exciting race for the national jockeys championship Muzi Yeni reduced the lead of Lyle Hewitson to two.
Greef repeated the recent feat of Paul Peter, who had six winners at the Vaal in one meeting, all ridden by Warren Kennedy.
Yeni rode the Duncan McKenzie-trained Bushy Park to victory in the last race.
Hewitson’s dry spell continued and he had another blank.
The lead which was ten winners at the beginning of last week is now down to two.
The two protagonists now head for Kenilworth tomorrow and there could be a thrilling conclusion at Greyville on Wednesday.
If they finish on an equal number of winners the title will be shared.
