Gold Circle Pay Tribute To TV Producer

Raymond Rogers: 13/05/1952 – 08/10/2018

Gold Circle have reported that it is with great sadness that they inform of the news of the sudden passing of Raymond Rogers on Monday morning, 8 October 2018.

Raymond was travelling with BSA’s Michael Holmes to film Ready-to-Run gallops on the Highveld when he suffered a massive heart attack at OR Tambo International Airport and, despite the best efforts of a team of paramedics, he was declared deceased shortly thereafter.

Based in Durban, Raymond enjoyed an illustrious career as Executive TV Producer for Gold Circle and Tellytrack and was due for retirement at the end of December. He will be sadly missed by all his colleagues at Gold Circle and our thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.

Prior to becoming involved in horse racing, soccer was Raymond’s first sporting love and he was an active qualified National Football League referee during his younger days.

    Thank you Gold Circle and Sporting Post for the kind words. My stepfather Raymond Rogers loved his career and was a gr8 dad to us all. He will be missed and was a true Legend.

  2. It is will deep sadness that I have learned of the passing of Raymond. A gentle giant in many respects and an absolute gentleman on and off the field where I came into contact with him in 1985. You will be sadly missed by many but especially by me. Rest In Peace Raymond.

    Shocked to hear at the sudden passing away of Ray. He was a very good and very fast school boy opening bowler who played SA Schools.
