This was also an inter- provincial
contest.
I'm struggling to find a WCape jockey in the field.
Not born down there like Roberts (Oudtshoorn)
and Striker ECape.

Jaoa Moriera won on Flyfirstclass in the maidens for me that day at Clairwood. Told me " Sir, this is a very good horse!" He was right. He won another 7 races after that.😁

Yes I was at Clairwood Park. This Jaoa "Magic" Moriera is a classy jockey and will be missed when he retires next year.

The Jockeys Internationals were a ego trip for that dick Larry. When Phumelela folded Frankie Dettori was listed as one of the individuals that was owed money so appearance money was clearly paid to a select few - I'm pretty sure that Turkish Camel driver was more than happy with the freebies.

Without having to pick up heavy penalties, look how easily the right horses won drawing away.
The finishes were not handicappers dream either, so it is a slap in the face for the MR system.
Sizzling Sun went on to win the Administrators Stakes worth R 1,25 million at Turffontein and there is an interesting story about this horse.

SIZZLING SUN gets up to win the ADMINISTRATORS CUP ridden by Weichong Marwing and trained by Ormonde Ferraris.
NB. All the commentaries were exciting in keeping with the standards back in the day
