The South Africans won the Racing. It’s A Rush! International Jockeys’ Challenge for the sixth time in eight years, scoring 453 points to the Internationals’ 368.

The locals have lost the Challenge only twice since the test was introduced by Phumelela and the Racing Association in 2008 – in 2011 and 2012.

South African jockey Anthony Delpech swooped in the last Challenge race, winning on 5-1 shot Paris Princess, to claim the Victor Ludorum for the most successful jockey across the eight races with 92 points to Aurelien Lemaitre’s 89. The Frenchman, the most successful jockey at Leg 1 of the Challenge at Fairview on Friday, had led until the final race, in which he finished fourth.

Delpech had Pine Princess just off the early lead until shortly after they straightened. She led 300m out and stayed on well to beat her stable companion Matsuri, ridden by Panamanian Eduardo Pedroza, by 1.50 lengths. Scot Robert Havlin was a head further back in third on Elusive Prophecy with Lematre’s mount Alessia fourth.
