He Also Broke In Equus Horse Of The Year Igugu
Kabelo Nkoane tweeted, “A nice story is that a guy who broke-in Mage is the same guy who broke in Igugu. His name is John Motaung from Pinetown (Durban). He is my friend working at Sequel stud in Florida. He was working at Summerhill. We were on the same class at School of Excellence.”
John and former South African apprentice jockey and assistant trainer Marcel Pillay were in the news last year when a Sequel colt fetched a record price at a sale.
The below article about that occasion gives a good picture of what this pair of Summerhill Stud School of Excellence graduates have been up to.
