Description SAED:SPORT:HORSE RACE:PERSONALITY:DRUM FEBRUARY 1952 Ð IÕve Got A Horse Ð A day in the life of a stable boy. Any kid can ride a horse, but not any boy rides a racehorse every morning. Eleven year old Jacob, seen here exercising Tied Up in the early morning, was born in the stable yard at Mr Pat Wrights Ôtraining establishment at the Colchester Lodge Stables. There is not much you can tell him about horses nowÉWho knows, one of these days he may be riding the fastest thing on four legs in this country. If a horse is to win the South African Derby or Durban July he will have to be scrupulously fed, watched, petted, groomed and exercised everyday of his racing career. Make no mistake, thatÕs everything. When he wins, youÕre thrilled, itÕs your work, when he fails, itÕs the jockey, or the course or his handicapper, never a horse. He wonÕt let you down.
