Today’s Vaal stipes report should make good reading, after Muzi Yeni and Piere Strydom were involved in an unsightly coming together during the closing stages of Race 4.
‘Striker’ certainly lived up to his nickname!
JOCKEYS IN CONFLICT: Race 4 at Vaal. Watch horses on the outside fighting it out, and then the jocks start intimidating each other.Yeni (yellow cap) seems to lean across to his inside, taking his mount with him aggressively. Strydom (striped cap), whips his rival jock in return! pic.twitter.com/7d75naOPlH

Yeni crossed the line first on Netta, but following an objection, was demoted to second, and Strydom’s Fort Anne was placed first.
Both jockeys seem certain to face further sanctions.
