Headline News PROFILE: Hard-working Muzi does not underestimate his opposition

<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt"><span lang="EN-GB"><strong><em>ASCENDING STAR: He looks like a 13-year-old, but there is nothing immature about Muzi Yeni&rsquo;s determination to succeed and 10 months after he qualified, the young rider needs just two more winners to equal his 2006 total.</em></strong><br />
<span lang="EN-GB"><br />
TO the uninitiated, 29 winners might not seem to indicate a star on the ascension, but Muzi is the 33rd most successful jockey in South Africa in terms of winners so far this year. His tally is also fairly impressive if one considers that most of his mounts have been second-string or just not expected to win (he has only ridden 56 favourites in his entire career) – and he has put the work into nearly every one of them.<br />
