Episode #1: Champion Jockey Anthony Delpech speaks about mental health and transition out of racing

Anthony Delpech is one of South Africa’s greatest ever jockeys. He won the prestigious Durban July 4 times, was crowned champion jockey twice, still holds the South African record of the most number of wins (334) in a season, and has won grade 1 races all over the world, including Hong Kong and Dubai. Then, on Tuesday the 7th April 2018, he fell off Majestic Mambo during the SA Classic at Turffontein. So began one of the most difficult periods in his life.
In this episode Anthony bravely speaks out about his battle with coming to terms with his retirement and the mental health struggles he had while trying to figure out life outside of racing.
