Our advert on the home page of mikedekockracing.com is working well with a lot of people in the industry talking about it which is good, as the saying goes “when they stop talking about you then you must start to worry” !
Onto a personal note, I watched Mike’s interview on Tellytrack last night and obviously watch the Dubai racing with pride and also a bit of sadness.We as country do not really comprehend what he has achieved.
I have visited Dubai from the first World Cup (when it was in its fledgling days and no one was visisting) right up to 2003 without missing a year. I really understand how tough it is out there to prove one self and really feel we do not give the team enough credit.
Yeah I know they are making big bucks but money cannot pay for the advertising they are doing for us SA breeders and the SA industry, I mean he should get some Government award or sport award, not just from the racing industry!
I speak to Mike when I see him, and as usual he is humble and grateful for the compliments but I feel I would like to congratulate him more regularly and thank him fror flying the SA flag!
Sure his nearest and dearest have that opportunity but us normal chaps I am sure feel the need to tell him “keep it up”. So please pass on my good wishes and our thanks and let us all know if he does get mail so perhaps we can tell him ourselves.We at Avontuur are proud to be associated with the team in this small way.
Thanks for the chance to chat and keep up the good work.
Pippa Mickleburgh, Avontuur Stud.
