    There was no Vaal race meeting on February 19??? The meeting that day was at Flamingo racecourse

    1. Editor says:

      Good point Ronny – we have asked the NHA to clarify

  2. Pops says:

    What was the evidence presented by Workrider Mabaya? Was the crowd angry with him so he decided to pull a Karl?
    The race meeting was actually on the 10th February and not the 19th February
