Mosia had a 13-point lead over Francis Semela going into the final leg

Sam Mosia retained his title in the Work Riders’ Challenge at Turf­fontein on Saturday.

Mosia had a 13-point lead over Francis Semela going into the fi­nal leg and he had it all wrapped up after winning the first two rac­es on the card.

He also went on ride two sec­ond places, one third and one fourth and that saw him gain an­other 46 points to win the R5,000 as the most successful rider at the meeting. By winning the competi­tion he received another cheque for R20,000 while Semela earned the R10,000 second-place stake.

Riding master for the work riders, James Maree, was excited about the third position going to Phelisile Mongqawa, who won Race 3 on Ficticious. “He is a very talented young rider and he has come on very well,” said Maree.
