Powerful KZN owner Brian Burnard has been mandated by a number of fellow owners to engage Gold Circle on their behalf in addressing the ever increasing unsustainability and lack of consultation.
Burnard writes in an email:
I had a meeting with Gold Circle on 16 August, informing them of the unacceptable position owners find themselves in.
The matters addressed were stakes monies and the condition of the racetracks – with many more issues still to be tabled.
Gold Circle were very accommodating and open to input from Owners.
I informed them that I intend establishing an ‘Independent Owners Association’ and was assured of their assistance where possible.
Owners finance horseracing, and the Operators, suppliers etc must be held accountable.
Pursuant to the above, I urge ALL owners to join this proposed Association, to enable us to collectively and constructively move forward in pursuing our goals
Since it will depend on the quantum of Owners willing to join that will determine the viability of establishing such an organisation, I request ALL interested Owners to email me their acceptance hereto.
Once viability is achieved, I will have the Constitution / Articles of Association drawn up and made available to all.
