Bonginkosi Nkosi: Former assistant trainer to Dean Kannemeyer and the wife of national jockeys’ championship log leader Warren Kennedy – Barbara Kennedy recently took her trainer’s licence and saddled her first two winners at Scottsville on Sunday afternoon.

“I train alongside my brother Wayne Badenhorst and the wins were exciting because we have a really small string,” she said.

“There is a lot to look forward to now.”

Considering this brother-sister duo have only raced 14 horses, it is quite impressive that they have already registered two wins and five places.

Interestingly, Kennedy is not surprised by all this early success.

“All this was expected to be completely honest,” she added.

“The yard has been doing well and a lot of my brother’s horses were already knocking on the door. We always knew it was a matter of time before things went right for us.”
