A double at Fairview on Friday gave high-riding owner Braam van Huyssteen of Tekkie Town fame his best season to date with over 100 winners! Sacred Oration (Grant Paddock) and Lotus Elan (Corne Spies), taking the Van Huyssteen team to over a century of winners.
Van Huysteen said in a Turf Talk interview this year: “I have the illness of horse ownership, but it’s a wonderful illness. People outside of racing look at me and think I’ve lost my marbles, but if only they knew the feeling of being this happily cooked!”
Behind the scenes, lots of the hard work is done by Kerry Jack Bloodstock, who takes care of Van Huyssteen’s racing affairs.
