Jabu started his apprenticeship at the Academy in January, 2017.  Jabu is attracted to the sport of horseracing due to its fast paced action and excitement. His favourite jockey is Muzi Yeni, who he admires for his unique riding style, positive attitude and tenacity, which Jabu hopes to emulate in his race riding career. Jabu is soccer crazy and loves to play as a midfielder, locally he supports Orlando Pirates and internationally he supports Chelsea.
