MIKE de Kock has paid tribute to colleague Johan van Eck, who died, aged 71, on Saturday.

Mike said: “Johan’s big successes in racing came in a time of SA racing history when we (today’s trainers), were all still learning about the game. He was up there with the best.

“I had drinks with him just last year on an occasion at the Vaal, he was in good spirits and chirpy as ever. His death is a shock. He was a trainer well respected by his peers. Condolences to his family, from all of us at Mike de Kock racing.”
