Queensland’s Robbie Fradd has won an International Jockeys Challenge in Mauritius representing his native South Africa.

Fradd and premier Brisbane rider Jeff Lloyd, who also represented South Africa, competed against riders from around the world over the weekend including Australian Luke Nolen.

Fradd was in sixth place after Saturday’s meeting but three winners on Sunday elevated him to the top of the table.
