THE Sansui Summer Cup hosted by Gauteng and the J&B Met will be run a week later than previously from the 2012-13 racing season, which begins on 1 August.

PHUMELELA is set to revolutionise horseracing in the Eastern Cape with the installation of a Polytrack synthetic racetrack on the inside of the existing turf circuit at Fairview Racecourse in Port Elizabeth. Installation of the new track should begin within a few weeks and should take about eight months to complete.

MORE than 300 underprivileged children from nine homes attended the Phumelela Christmas Tree raceday at Turffontein on Sunday 3 December 2011.

HORSERACING and tote betting company Phumelela is proud to announce that the Gauteng Tourism Authority (GTA) is to partner the Sansui Summer Cup with the aim of transforming the raceday into a mega event with national and international appeal.

The GTA’s partnership with the race was announced at a media conference at Turffontein yesterday, an apt occasion in light of it being World Tourism Day.


AIR MAURITIUS and the Racing Association have signed a sponsorship deal worth some R500,000 for The Citizen Jockeys’ International Challenge.

Larry Wainstein, chairman of the Racing Association which represents racehorse owners in Phumelela racing regions and is the driving force behind annual competition, said: ``We are thrilled to have Air Mauritius on board for this prestigious event. Both parties were keen to reach an agreement and I hope our association will continue well into the future.’’


RIAN DU PLESSIS, Group CEO of Phumelela, and Paul Roy, chairman of the British Horseracing Authority, are the latest in a long list of distinguished international speakers confirmed for Leaders in Racing conference on 6 October 2011.

In an eagerly anticipated day of debates about the international business of horseracing, Roy and Du Plessis will be joining such important racing administrators as:


HORSES seem to enjoy the track
THE new Polytrack training surface at Randjesfontein was officially opened by Phumelela’s racing executive Patrick Davis and champion trainer Mike de Kock on Wednesday with the ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by around 100 people, including Larry Wainstein, chairman of the Racing Association which owns Randjesfontein, jockeys, the media and trainers from as far afield as Port Elizabeth.

Five of Mike Azzie’s horses galloped on the new track and seemed to enjoy working on the synthetic surface.
