  1. Peter Dembitzer says:

    Yet another diabolical fiasco at Fairview. where the jockeys are complaining about track conditions. Next step will be to change to polytrack with bets cancelled and numerous horses scratched. Sick to death of South African racing that does everything not to race.


    I agree with you Peter, and then those who are bold enough to speak up are accused of not been passionate or don’t have a heart about the sport ?!

    I’m all heart, mother buffers (Phumelela), since 1978 , all heart !
