GREEFF AND LAING LAND LISTED FEATURES
Piere Strydom inched one win closer to his goal of 5500 winners when riding a winner for Emmanuel Kaknis at Fairview today.
Fittingly, nephew Kyle later rode a winner for Zietsman Oosthuizen.
It was the first time Piere and Kyle had ridden together in the home city of the Strydom family.
They both rode in both of the Listed races at the meeting.
Piere finished second on the Justin Snaith-trained Nexus (Dynasty) in the Listed Memorial mile, which was won by the Allan Greeff-trained Grazinginthegrass (Philanthropist), ridden by S’Manga Khumalo.
Piere had earlier finished third on the Snaith-trained Rain In Newmarket in the Listed East Cape Paddock Stakes, which was won by the Tara Laing-trained Integrity (Flower Alley), ridden by Ryan Munger.
Piere aims to officially retire when reaching 5500 career winners.
He is now just six short of the target.
