When Gavin Venter speaks about Fairview racing everyone listens.

These days the former champion jockey is an important member in the stable of the very successful trainer Tara Laing.

Venter is widely respected as one of the most knowledgeable people when it comes to racing in Port Elizabeth.

This past Friday (9 Nov) he made some very interesting comments to take note of after the running of the Racing Association Pinnacle Stakes over 1600m.

Afrikaburn won the race for the Laing stable but it was the comments about the stablemate Go Direct that make punters scrambling for their notebooks.

“If this horse joined the stable earlier he would have won the Algoa Cup. He will be the horse to beat in next year’s Algoa Cup,” is Venter’s early prediction.

“We will now prep him for the staying races in PE,” Venter added about the 6y old gelding that had his first run since March for a very credible second place.
