November just had to be the month in which PE trainer Sharon Kotzen saddled her first double.

The cherry on the cake was that her husband Gregory was involved as a part-owner in both these victories.

Kotzen had her first winner after taking out her trainer’s licence when Treize won at Fairview at the International Jockey Challenge meeting last year in November.

Last Friday at Fairview (17th) November was again a lucky month for Kotzen when the three year old gelding Desert Chief and the four year old filly Insinya gave Kotzen her first trainer’s double.

Sharon was an assistant to Ormond Ferraris and thanked the veteran Gauteng trainer for letting her take Desert Chief with her to PE.

Gregory said the fact that Desert Chief was amongst the first horses that Sharon trained in PE made this victory very special.

It was just as special that Sharon as a trainer, and Gregory as an owner, could enjoy their first double together with the same two horses at Fairview.
