After a neck-and-neck tussle with Dennis Drier, Duncan timed his run to perfection to put the KZN Trainers Championship 2016/17 to bed in the last three weeks of the season. Finishing 11th on the National Trainers log, where positions are calculated by stakes won, Duncans 75 winners in KZN were six more than Dennis.
This was Duncans second KZN Trainers Championship.

Duncan’s first Championship was in the 2013/14 season where he finished with 79 winners ahead of Mike de Kock and Dennis Drier.

In that year Duncan also had three out-of-province winners including Via Africa winning the Gr1 Cape Flying Championship at Kenilworth and finished seventh on the National Log with total earnings of R8.7 million.
