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.


JSE-LISTED Phumelela is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new TAB sports bet, Rugby 5, to coincide with the start of the Rugby World Cup 2011.

Rugby 5 is similar to several other TAB bets, including the Pick 6 and Jackpot on horseracing and TAB’s extremely popular range of pool bets on soccer, namely Soccer 6, Soccer 4 and Soccer 10.


Phumelela horseracing executive Patrick Davis said that the official handover of the Polytrack training track is scheduled for 29 August. “It’s two weeks later than originally scheduled for a number of reasons, but mostly because of the terrible weather we’ve had in the last few weeks.


TAB customers can play a Swinger bet for R2 from 1 Sep. TAB has a R6 minimum bet policy, but is lowering the minimum for the Swinger to R2 on a three-month trial basis. “Many of our customers believe that a R6 minimum is too high. So, on a trial basis, we have decided to drop the minimum bet on the Swinger, one of our most popular bets, to R2 from September. We will review the impact of the lower minimum at the end of November,’’ said Vee Moodley, Phumelela’s betting executive.

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.
