not surprised with his move after the latest strike / protest at Turffontein - after which Mr. Ferraris chucked in his licence.........
can we presume ONE of his assistant trainers will take over the string...... otherwise where will the bulk of his horses go to ?

will be interesting to see where Mary / Jessica horses end up with....... I very much doubt Tarry....his big patron is Van Niekerk ! on the short list i'd put Van VUUREN ;)

Will the Sheik continue sending his USD to SA if/when Mdk closes shop in SA?

Are you living your life or waiting to die?

Its sad news for SA racing.

I am sure the fact that the long overdrawn fiasco of being unable to transport horses without massive frustrations has to have been a major factor.

Sure the MDK team will shine wherever they go.

I’m sure it’s an eventual way out of SAF for him and his family

Sure ( don’t quote me ) it takes 4 or 5 years to get citizenship so I’m sure OZ will just be a satellite yard for now

Bob you are correct but remember what financial backing Mr de Kock has it will take him 2years max. I wish him all the success forward and I am sure him and his son will make sa proud.

After he was hospitalised mdk did say he will emigrate. No secret here. The Sheik won’t continue with Aus imports. Mdk will have to compete with the other Aus trainers who also train for the Sheik. That is the blue sheik and the yellow sheik.

No more time to waste

MANY South African racing fans would have been shocked by Mike de Kock’s official announcement on Monday that he and son Mathew will be setting up a satellite yard in Australia.

Others will argue that this is no surprise whatsoever, the unavoidable result of progression to a personally safer and more beneficial stage – to be seen in the same perspective as the brain drain, the mass exit of skills and educated knowledge from this troubled land.

Mike has indicated that South Africa will remain his main base, and that this will serve as a platform to export horses to Australia and elsewhere. Perhaps he wants to wait and see how successful he will be in Cranbourne, Victoria, before making any more permanent decisions.

Sure he will get fast tracked but there will still be hoops to jump

De Kock will need Victoria licence
MIKE DE KOCK

Racing Victoria integrity boss Jamie Stier says there is a lot of water to go under the bridge before Mike De Kock is granted a licence to train in Victoria, Australia.

AUGUST 7, 2019
South African-based De Kock has indicated he would like to set up a stable at the Cranbourne training complex in partnership with his son Mathew.
He said he would maintain his South African stable ahead of expected changes to export regulations.
Stier said there had been no discussion with De Kock from either the integrity or licensing departments of Racing Victoria.
“We have followed what has been said in the media and to us at this stage it appears as a conceptual idea and that he’s exploring the opportunities available to him,” Stier told RSN927.
“Once they arrive at a position and they get those various matters regarding visas, quarantine and the like sorted out, they’ll be in touch with us and we’ll work through the process with them then.
“I did note that he did in his own commentary emphasise his son and establishing him so we don’t even know whether it is Mr De Kock that will be applying for the licence or if it will be his son.”
Through his work overseas, Stier says he has known De Kock for 20 years and has no doubt he will contact Racing Victoria when the time is appropriate.
There has been discussion as to how De Kock, with his main training base in South Africa, could run a satellite operation in Victoria.
“I think we need to get an understanding of what he has in mind and then work out if that is tenable and whether it fits our racing environment,” Stier said.
“Whatever decision we arrive at will be for the Victorian racing environment and not a decision for Mr De Kock.” – AAP
