It seems that race fans all over South Africa are talking about popular jockey Andrew Fortune, and in a good way, Andrew has hordes of fans who are supporting his umteenth return to race riding. Andrew it seems is an inspiration to almost all involved in the sport and more so to die hard punters who have battled on in a tough game through the years, Seldom does one capture the hearts of an industry as "MANNA" has... "Have you seen his record since comming back", "Did you hear his interview","Hell, he sits still on a horse" are some of the comments thrown around in racing circles where Manna is often the topic of conversation, and as owner Selwyn Aronson put it, "years ago I was the first of the partners to go down after Drum Star had won and ANDREW leaned down and patted me on the shoulder and said, "uncle, there's plenty in the tank for this one", and he was right. He is such a respectful guy, please send him my best regards". Will do Sel
