I have for many years been a very close friend of the Barendse and Roberts families - they were closely connected to horseraing in SA. The daughters of Aubrey Roberts married the jockey Jeff Lloyd and the other one Glen Schofield. In 2007 the whole family moved to Sydney and I visited them there in 2008. When I had supper with Denny one evening at a restaurant - Jeff Lloyd walked in to get some takeaways and I intporduced him to Denny.
What Denny referred to here relates to the riding activities of Jeff Lloyd andd Glenn Schofield. I am still in regular contact with them and I know Lloyd went to ride in Hong Kong since 2009. The family returned to Australia in February this year and the moved to a place near Brisbane. Schfield continued to ride in Sydney and he is at present second on the jockey's top rider list. In 2011 Schofield's son Chad became an apprentice jockey and he is highly regarded as a jockey. That was basically what Denny wrote about.
Incidentally Lloyd was riding some horses on July day in Durban. I found a foreign telephone number on my phone and thought it may have been Jeff trying to phone me. Since my cell is limited to local calls, I phoned his brothjer-in-law in Sydney and he gave me one of the horses ridden by Jeff as a likely winner. I then took a double with another horse and made a neat little profit of R8 000.
Are things clear now?
