Grand Heritage 2018 – Entries

58 entries - 28 can run

A total of 58 horses have been entered for the R750,000 World Sports Betting Grand Heritage (Non-Black Type) – the event with the biggest field in South African racing – to be run over 1475m at the Vaal on Saturday 29 September.

Tabnews reports that there will be a maximum field size of 28 starters.

Former national champion trainer Sean Tarry has no fewer than eight nominations, including Africa Rising, Count Tassilo and London Secret.

Mike de Kock has entered just two, but they are quality individuals: Triple Crown performer Noble Secret and highly rated Australian import Dhabyaan.

Winner of the inaugural Grand Heritage in 2016, Irish Pride, from the Johan Janse van Vuuren stable, is among the hopefuls.

Others to catch the eye are veteran campaigner Killua Castle, from Geoff Woodruff’s yard, and a raider from KwaZulu-Natal in the shape of Shane Humby-trained Socrates.

The Grand Heritage is open to all horses and the final field is by way of invitation from racing operator Phumelela.


Classify – could try again

To be considered for inclusion in the final field, every horse nominated must have had at least a minimum of one run from the time of first entry up to and including the time of the final supplementary entry.

Base weights are determined by the handicapper prior to consideration of additional weights for Graded and Listed races. Additional penalties for highest Graded/Listed win in the last 18 months are: Grade 1 3kg, Grade 2 2kg, Grade 3 1kg, Listed 0.5kg.

Thereafter, where applicable, amended weights for runs between first and final supplementary entries will be published on a weekly basis until final weights are published. There is no sex allowance and no apprentice allowance.

Stakes are payable up to 15th position, provided 28 runners + 2 reserve runners are declared, with the first prize being R406,250.

    It may be the biggest field since the advent of starting stalls, but it is not the biggest field in South African horseracing history. In the 1930s and 1940s fields of 36 and 40 were commonplace.
