The Jockeys

Carefully selecting each jockey, N.K Racing ensures they only work with reputable and talented jockeys such as the legendary 5000-time winner Pierre Strydom.

Another favourite is international rider Anton Marcus who has racked up an incredible 102 Grade1 wins in a long and illustrious career and is currently completing a century of top-level wins achieved in South Africa alone.
