KZN Initiative Launches On Wednesday

KZN Breeders and Gold Circle join hands

The KwaZulu Natal Breeders’ Club and Gold Circle have joined forces to introduce a new Trainers and Jockeys’ Challenge which kicks off on Wednesday 2 May at Scottsville and culminates with the KZN Breeders’ Raceday at Greyville on Saturday 30 June.

KZN Breeder Awards

Points will accrue to the trainers and riders of all KZN-bred horses for every race run during this period, on the basis of 8 points for a win; 6 for second; 4 for third and two points for fourth. The leading trainer at the end of the period will receive a R30 000 voucher to be used towards the purchase of any KZN-bred yearling at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale, with the runner-up receiving a R15 000 voucher and the third placed trainer a R5 000 voucher.

Jockeys will compete for a cash prize pool of R50 000, split amongst the top three riders in the same ratio as the trainers. The points table for each category will be published on a weekly basis.

The KZN Yearling Sale will be held at Sibaya Casino on Thursday 5 July and Friday 6th July.
