Chrome Turns To Fold

Local Should Always Be Lekker

One had to feel for veteran Aussie commentator Terry Spargo who was thrown in the deep end at Greyville on Super Saturday.

Terry Spargo – Super Saturday caller

His identifying the wrong horse in the Gold Cup and the ‘World’ Champions Cup can happen to anybody – especially in a foreign country.

Even our jockeys took on aliases – Richard Fury, Corn Offer, Mezi Yarnee and MJ Bileveld to mention a few.

But what was actually the point of replacing our local racecallers?

Surely these days are the career high-points for our locals? We can’t see the Aussies ever inviting Bumpie Schoeman to call the Cox Plate.

Local should always be lekker!

    Shocking call by gold circle.How would you feel if on the biggest day of your working year you were replaced by someone to do your job.Feel sorry for Terry it was pathetic but more sorry for Craig and Sheldon

  3. Michael Jacobs says:

    When Rouvan Smit went to guest-comment at Goodwood a few years ago he was given a minor race on the card, not the feature race of the day. And that’s fine as it was a gesture of friendship between two racing jurisdictions. Why do we give visiting commentators our feature races, which are the highlight for our local commentators? We don’t need to suck up to anyone, our feature racing is world class!

  4. Mervin says:

    Our commentators are world class .They make racing interesting an are full of passion whether it is a Grade One or Maiden Plate. To listen to Sheldon and Craig is a thrill of racing.
