The Bartie Leisher Story

Born in Mayfair Johannesburg in 1962 – the youngest of nine siblings – Bartie Leisher at age 23 became the youngest South African jockey to earn Springbok Colours. He again took SA colours in 1985.

Known as the jockey who would “always ride to win”, Bartie was well-loved by the rank-&-file South African public and brought a measure of personal integrity to the sport of horse-racing.

His story is in two parts. See below for part 2.
