PHUMELELA is proud to announce that The Citizen will sponsor the International Jockeys’ Challenge again this year.

Said Larry Wainstein, chairman of the Racing Association, which represents the interests of racehorse owners in Phumelela racing regions and is the driving force behind the Jockeys’ Challenge: “We’re thrilled that The Citizen, who sponsored the event for the first time last year, is on board again. Their involvement will give the Challenge exposure and create interest to help us grow the event.”


NEXT season’s champion jockey will receive a bonanza payday, courtesy of Klawervlei Stud which is putting up a R250,000 prize for the winner.

KIMBERLEY’S richest race of the year, a R200,000 race over 1600m held annually at the end of August at Flamingo Park, will this year be sponsored by Recall Security Services.

PHUMELELA has imported a bank of state-of-the-art starting stalls from Australia for use at Fairview Racecourse in the Eastern Cape.

According to Phumelela’s horseracing executive Patrick Davis, it had become necessary to replace the old bank of starting stalls at Fairview. After due investigation, it was decided to buy SIMTRACK starting stalls, which are in use at Randwick in Australia, Longchamp and Chantilly in France and at several other racecourses around the world.


Recall Effective Security Services is to sponsor one of South Africa’s oldest feature races, the East Cape Derby for three-year-olds to be run over 2400m at Arlington in Port Elizabeth on Sunday 15 May.

The Derby will be the highlight of a two-day racing festival in Port Elizabeth. The festival kicks off with a race meeting at Fairview on Friday 13 May, when the Dahlia Plate powered by Die Son over 1200m will head the programme. Die Son is the official media partner of the festival, which wraps up with the East Cape Derby meeting two days later.


PHUMELELA is pleased to announce its association with Samsung through the sponsorship of the R1.5-million SA Derby by Samsung Business.

The SA Derby powered by Samsung Business will be run on Champions Day at Turffontein on Saturday 30 April. The race is the final and toughest leg of the SASCOC SA Triple Crown for three-year-olds and is run over the marathon distance of 2450m.


HORSERACING and tote betting company Phumelela plans to install a state-of-the-art synthetic racetrack at Fairview Racecourse in Port Elizabeth, which will deliver major benefits to horses and the environment.

The installation of a synthetic racetrack at Fairview will render Port Elizabeth’s other racecourse Arlington redundant because unlike turf tracks any number of race meetings can be held on a synthetic surface.
