In the light of the recent media attention following the post-race interview after my win on Coldhardcash at Greyville on 31 July, I wish to set the record straight and clarify the sentiment I was trying to express.

Muzi Yeni writes that his career has spanned over 14 years.

During this period, I have experienced a gradual rise on the Jockey log, coming closer and closer to the top with each season. I would like to believe that it was made possible purely by hard work and dedication on my part, without expecting for anything to be handed to me on a silver platter.

I do my share of work. I too get up at the crack of dawn to go ride work on the horses I ask from the trainers. It has only been this past season that I have had the assistance of agents to help me with booking my rides for the Johannesburg and Durban centres. Otherwise I book my own rides after track work and still continue to ride a full card for the day.

All of this on top of travelling around the country every single day.

I would like to also take this opportunity to thank all the people who have supported me and helped me to reach this level.

I have always shown my appreciation during the year. I acknowledge that there are a large number of trainers as well as others in the game that are behind me and I will forever be grateful to them. My gratitude should not be overshadowed by a single interview that was given in a moment of intense emotion.

Regarding comments that I am a sore loser, I would like to emphasise the fact that my comments and sentiments have absolutely nothing to do with Mr Hewitson as an individual, but rather with the general state of affairs leading up to the conclusion of the season.

Had it been any other person in Mr Hewitson’s position, the sentiment would still be the same. I bear the champion no ill will and indeed congratulate him on his victory.

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve enjoyed a long career.

It has not, however, always been pleasant. There have been many instances where I have been subjected to blatant bullying by my peers and authority figures alike, details of which have never been made public.

I am not bitter or entitled by any means. I just happen to believe in a system of fairness.

I will, however, continue to be thankful to God for all the opportunities I’ve been afforded. I will remain determined to work hard and chase my ambitions.
