Competition May Be The Answer

Is there an appetite and need?

In something of a bizarre twist following the announcement on Thursday of the closure of Kimberley, the Gauteng Gambling Board has called for expressions of interest to develop, own and operate a racemeeting licence in Gauteng.

The undated notice in the possession of the Sporting Post states that there is currently only one licence in Gauteng and as the statement confirms, that was issued at the dawn of the democratic dispensation in SA.

In the interests of fostering competition in the horseracing betting industry, the board wishes to establish whether there is an appetite and need for additional racemeeting licences.

The closing date for submissions of interest is 30 September 2019.

    Notice 1325 of 2019

    Owen Hefer, Jeremy Marshall et al this is your opportunity to repay all the crap you have endured from Phumelela over the years. You lads would turn racing around faster than Phumelela could say bonus time again.

    Good riddance to the rubbish that have destroyed racing in two short decades.

    I wonder how long it will be before a Mauritian retirement home will be permanently occupied. The fruits of being a Judas were very rewarding it seems.

    Yes Chris,

    Please Betfair, save the nation
