THE EMERALD CUP

 2014

THE 2014 EMERALD CUP WILL BE RUN AT THE VAAL RACECOURSE ON SATURDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2014. For more information click here or call 011-681-1702.


SUCCESSFUL RAID. Port Elizabeth challenger In A Rush (Francois Herholdt) is one of the
less fancied runners in the 2013 Emerald Cup but enjoys racing on the sand track and beats
fast-finishing Pylon by 0.75 lengths. In A Rush is trained by Gavin Smith and owned by
Messrs LG Adams, PG Choice, HM Gerber and Smith.

 

THE Emerald Cup, sponsored by the Emerald Casino Resort on the banks of the Vaal River, is Africa’s richest race on sand and carries total prize money of R1,000,000.

The race is run over 1400m on the Vaal sand track and traditionally takes place towards the end of September, a position in which it kicks off Phumelela’s major events each racing season.
