KIRRA Kotzen, daughter of trainer Glen and Kathy Kotzen, has initiated a fundraising drive for South African jockeys via backabuddy, with the blessing and support of the Coastal Jockeys Association.
She said: “Government faces challenges and demands from all directions and while I am aware that applications have been initiated for support for our jockeys through the sports channels, I don’t think we have the time to sit on our hands and hope things will just get better. If anybody is able, every R1 counts and will make a difference,” she added.
Kirra thanked Andrew Bon and Gavin Pickford for assistance in the compilation of the video clip.
The Save our Jocks Campaign aims to provide South African Jockeys with funds to relieve any financial strain caused by COVID-19.
