When it comes to pre-publicity, today’s Happy Mother’s Day meeting at Durbanville has had plenty of it and the well-subscribed programme gets under way at 13h30.
Phumelela said in a press release earlier that after a number of owners in the Western Cape expressed their disappointment at the cancellation of the Durbanville meeting on Election Day, it was decided, after consultation with the board of Kenilworth Racing, to stage today’s meeting.
There are eight races carded today with the first also the Bipot opener.
The false rail is set at zero on the back straight with a 2m spur at approximately the 550m mark.
