Track – Kenilworth Racing Apologises

The Winter Course will be used again this Saturday, 27 May

Due to the catastrophic drought currently being experienced in the Western Cape, the Winter course was unable to be adequately prepared for the race meeting at Kenilworth on Sunday 21 May 2017, resulting in the Summer course being utilised.

PIC OF KEN TRACKIn a press release issued by Phumelela Gaming & Leisure Limited on Monday 22 May 2017, it was stated that while the Operators and National Horseracing Authority were apprised of developments, as were the National Racing Bureau who duly advertised same, certain sectors of the general public were regrettably uninformed due to an unacceptable breakdown in communication.

Kenilworth Racing deeply regrets and profusely apologises for this unfortunate oversight and advises that disciplinary action will be taken against those responsible.

The Winter Course will be used this Saturday, 27 May 2017.

Ed – The Western Cape government today declared the entire province a disaster area in order to deal with the ongoing drought

    Hi, the final comment sounds somewhat contradictory – will the winter course be used this weekend or will the summer course be used again

    1. Editor says:

      Good point Dave – that is a tad confusing – we have amended the press release

      1. Extravagantlyhorseracing says:

        Is it normal to edit press releases

        1. Editor says:

          Yes EHS , when it does not alter the crux of the content. This was a minor grammar amendment to convey the message clearer and as it was intended.

          If you’d see how most press releases are worded you wouldn’t ask that question.

          1. Jurgs says:

            Well if we were press we would see them wouldn’t we? Press releases are not meant to be corrected regardless of whether they are grammatically redundant or not.

            thanks, i assumed a press release was just forwarded on

  2. Graham Hurlstone-Jones says:

    I play online mostly and to only hear this now leaves me totally shocked. It makes a complete mockery of the whole industry, the second leg of the winter triple crown was run on the wrong course ???!!! as were the other races ??!! What is the point ? The service in this restaurant is getting worse…….African Night Sky would have won on any track but the other short head races !!?? I feel ripped off……again. Its not the money, its the loss of enjoyment, this just adds to the ongoing bad service which leaves a horrible taste in your mouth.
