Khumalo's victory on Heavy Metal made him the first black jockey in history to win this coveted Group 1.

Earlier in the day, he had the perfect start to the Greyville meeting, winning the Golden Slipper on For The Lads.

With wins over 2,200 and 1400 metres, Khumalo proved at ease over all distances.
