Sam Ryan, partner of KZN jockey Eric Ngwane who is workriding in the UK for Ralph Beckett, is earning a living abroad but does not earn enough to pay for a return flight to the Oh Susanna Ladies International Race on January 7, 2023, on L’Ormarins Queens Plate day in Cape Town. 

Hi all! 

My name is Sam.

I have been invited to ride in the Oh Susanna Ladies International Race on the 7th of January 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa.This race is being held on one of South Africa’s most prestigious race days – the L’Ormarins King’s Plate Day (previously known as the L’Ormarins Queens Plate)I relocated from South Africa to the UK in December 2021, I now currently work as a full time exercise rider at Ralph Beckett, where previously in South Africa I was assistant to trainers Garth Puller and Lezeanne Forbes.I need help to pay for a return flight from London to Cape Town, as most things are expensive these days, flights are even more expensive right after the festive season as everybody it trying to return home.This race is ever so special as ladies have been presented with the opportunity to ride in an all ladies race for the first time in a very long time in South Africa. It would be fantastic to be part of history, as I believe this race is capable of bringing more opportunity and diversity to South African horse racing.Please help me take part as riding in this race would allow me to embrace how special it is for ladies of all ages to be recognised in the South African Racing industry.
