LOVING YOU: That's probably what Juan Paul van der Merwe whispered to the horse underneath him when he dismounted in the Class 4, Div 2 - 1200m sprint at Kranji here tonight.

For after 32 rides with just a third placing to show, the South African jockey finally landed his first win in Singapore astride LOVING YOU.

Van der Merwe took the American mare to the front on settling down and made every post a winning one. She won by three-quarter length.

LOVING YOU had made a winning start to her career when winning her debut slightly more than 12 months ago and picked up another win last August. She then had a series of placings before being given a short let-up.

Her seasonal debut again brought a winning performance.

"Itís been a while, but itís good to finally get that first win," said van der Merwe. "Itís not been easy. I had to go back home for some personal issues, but Iíve done my homework on this horse and saw that she was more a Polytrack horse than a grass horse."

The 28-year-old won around 700 races back home. Singapore is his second overseas stint after Mauritius where he rode 18 winners.
