Siphesihle Hlengwa made a wonderful start as Heversham Park’s sponsored apprentice in KZN with a winner, two seconds and two thirds at the Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack on 1 May.
Siphesihle rode the outsider Action Stations to victory in Race 4 over 1600m, for trainer Paul Lafferty. The 19-year-old has a calm demeanour – he brought this one gradually over from his outside draw to be right in contention as they turned for home, and left enough in the tank for a strong run to the wire.
“I am grateful for the opportunity, thanks to Heversham,” said Siphesihle, who will be receiving his branded riding kit from us this week. We wish him more winners!
