Vaal Abandoned

Waterlogged track

The race meeting scheduled for the Vaal today has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

This follows continuous heavy rain on the Highveld from Monday afternoon onward – and more rain forecast for the whole of Tuesday.

Track inspections at both the Vaal and Turffontein courses were conducted at 8am and the decision to scrap the meeting was taken immediately.

    130 runners carded to run today. Owners, trainers, grooms, punters denied once again.
    While the rain is welcome and the track is unfit to hold the meeting today, one wonders when the term “postponed” or “rescheduled” will be included in the Operator’s lexicon ?
