Fairview – Suspected AHS Case

Two big races at month end

A suspected, but as yet unconfirmed, African Horse Sickness fatality in close proximity to Fairview Racecourse this morning has placed a cloud over visitor plans for feature races later this month in the Eastern Cape.

A lockdown on all movement was implemented immediately.

This case could have serious consequences for Cape trainers who have come out in numbers with entries for the R350 000 Listed Algoa Cup over 2000m to be run on Sunday 28 October and the Listed Racing Association Plate for three-year-olds over 1600m to be run on Friday 26 October at Fairview Racecourse.

Big name likely visitors include Justin Snaith, Candice Bass-Robinson, Glen Kotzen, Vaughan Marshall and Dan Katz , while Joburg based Sean Tarry could also travel.

The Sporting Post has been in contact with the State Vet and further information is awaited.

If confirmed, visitors could travel into Fairview but would then have to remain in the area for 40 days.
