“MIKE DE KOCK AND CHARL PRETORIUS”

The Ready To Run gallops are always characterized by some noticeable performances, and it was again the case on Friday. It takes something exceptional though, to attract the attention of men of the ilk of our judging panel, given that each and every one of them has something like three decades at the top of their game. So when a man like Mike de Kock stands up and specifically singles out the Solskjaers and the Way Wests for their performances as a group, you must know they did something to catch his attention. He wasn’t alone though. There was a nod of fairly broad approval from other members of the panel when he said it, so this was no fleeting impression.

Another man with a lifetime in the game, one who earned his “Gradua Literatum Honorary Cum Laudae” on Thursday evening for his contribution to racing journalism, Charl Pretorius, was equally impressed. While his preferences were not recorded officially, for decades he’s been counted among the nation’s leading tipsters, and unlike most of us, he makes a living from his ability to pick a good one.
