Jooste bowled over by Yorker
Markus was on course to lead in Yorker after winning the R2 million Summer Cup (Grade 1) over 2000m at Turffontein on Saturday. He doesn’t come racing as often as he would like these days but when he visits the course he’s generally there with purpose. Yorker was bred by Mr and Mrs C F de Vos – Jet Master – Little Indian by Al Mufti (USA) and is owned in partnership with Messrs B Kantor, FEJ Lewis and Mrs Ingrid Jooste.
Markus and Ingrid were also victorious in the final race on the card, the Kaya FM Maiden Plate with Rushmore River from the Joey Soma stable. This was a RA bonus race and the country’s leading owners enjoyed the added bonus of R20 000.
