Carl Hewitson notched his first winner as a trainer when favourite Set The Date (13-10) came home comfortably in the opener at Hollywoodbets Greyville today. 

And fittingly the three-year-old filly was partnered by his prolific son – two-time champion and current jockeys log leader Lyle. 

Carl of course is an ex-jockey himself, and was previously assistant to Yvette Bremner.
He relocated to KZN following the ugly PE incident which led to her relinquishing her license.
