Met Makes Simulcast History

'Major Achievement'

Phumelela Gaming & Leisure have announced that the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) will be simulcasting South African racing for the first time.

Sun Met

In an historic move they will be taking the Kenilworth 27 January meeting and includes the R5-million Sun Met. Hong Kong will be taking Races 5 to 10.

“This is a major achievement for South African racing,” said International Executive Director John Stuart. “The Hong Kong Jockey Club look to simulcast only the major meetings from around the world so one can see how highly they rate South African racing and specifically an event such as the Sun Met.”

In addition, the HKJC have confirmed two of their journalists will be coming over to cover the build-up to the race meeting. Tellytrack will be creating a special production for them in which one the presenters will include former jockey Basil Marcus, who is well known in Hong Kong. Marcus is a seven-time champion jockey who settled back in Cape Town after the curtain came down on his riding career.

    Surely Shane Shaw should be considered.

  2. Albert X says:

    Phumelela must know something we do not. The last I heard is that the Met will be protested against should any horse owned or previously owned by Jooste and Mayfair Speculators run in the race.
