Jack Milner: Sam Mosia retained his title in the Work Riders’ Challenge at Turffontein on Saturday.
Mosia had a 13-point lead over Francis Semela going into the final leg and he had it all wrapped up after winning the first two races on the card – on Pera Palace for trainer Paul Peter and Bono for Weiho Marwing.
He also went on ride two second places, one third and one fourth and that saw him gain another 46 points to win the R5,000 as the most successful rider at the meeting. By winning the competition he received another cheque for R20,000 while Semela earned the R10,000 second-place stake.
Riding master for the work riders, James Maree, was very excited about the third position going to Phelisile Mongqawa, who won Race 3 aboard Ficticious. “He is a very talented young rider and he has come on very well,” said Maree.
