Apprentice Solomons' great progress on rehabilitation

Joshwin has been working diligently at his rehabilitation at the Durban Academy after fracturing his ankle at the end of April. Academy Biokineticist Chloe Goetsch from Justin Bircher and Associates Biokineticists has been working on cross-training and maintaining fitness and strength in uninjured areas with Joshwin. This assists him with getting back to a pre-injury fitness level quicker with less risk of injury. Joshwin is currently partial weight-bearing and is coming along in leaps and bounds with his program. We wish him a speedy recovery!

It was with shock that we received the news last night that Nooresh Juglall had succumbed to his injuries during a horrendous fall at Champs de Mars in Mauritius.

 

The South African Jockey Academy, Gauteng Jockey Academy the Board, Staff and Apprentices extend our heartfelt condolences to Nooresh’s wife and children as well as his family.

 

Nooresh joined the South African Jockey Academy on the 30th March 2009, he was still one of the apprentices sent to the South African Jockey Academy, supported by the Mauritian Turf Club.

 

It was very clear from the outset that Nooresh was a determined young man who was destined to go places and to be successful. It did not take him long to sign his race riding papers at the end of 2009 and on the 16thMarch 2010, he rode his first winner aboard, “Shine The Gold.”

 

Nooresh certainly shone the gold as a person and as a jockey, not many people will know that he financially assisted his younger brother, Tejash, so that he too could attend the South African Jockey Academy.

 

Nooresh was very successful as an apprentice jockey winning the Champion apprentice twice, riding listed, Grade 1, 2 and 3 races as well as winning the Triple Crown in 2013. 

 

This is truly such a very sad time and we just pray for comfort and peace for the family at this incredibly difficult time.

 

May his sole rest in peace.

Apprentice Matsunyane wins at Turffontein Racecourse.
