Cape Racing – Meeting This Evening

Kenilworth Room - 18h00

This evening’s meeting at Kenilworth Racecourse is open to all interested stakeholders.

The Sporting Post was able to confirm this aspect after inquiries from various quarters, including NHRA members,  as to why a notice about the time and date had only been issued to Racing Association members and not the broader racing community.

According to sources, the meeting is at the behest of the RA and representation is expected from a wide spectrum of stakeholders – even though the convening of it caught many by surprise, and it does not include the local racing operator, Kenilworth Racing.

The lack of a unified front will no doubt, will be a hot topic for discussion, with a pending stakes cut  one of the other bones of contention.

It will be held in the Kenilworth Room at 18h00.

    I hope Larry and Pat got their stories straight this time. So far the rumours have Durbanville closing and being made a training venue with Milnerton getting sold off. Then we have stakes reductions coming, the meeting to decide by what amount is being held as I post. This is one big fat gemors! Surely to goodness this could have been handled in a far more professional manner?

  2. J. Swersky says:

    Who in their right mind calls an official meeting and does not say what it is about?

    Plain courtesy instructs that the invitees are informed of the program.

    On the business front, the directors of the RA need to seriously question their ability and knowledge.

    Patrick Davis must be wondering what hit him

  4. But could anybody tell me, for the sake of clarity, if any of the different “bodies” below going to be there ?

    The Breeders Asociations, Kenilworth Racing,Phumelela (Mr. Davis, in particular), the NHA, the handicapping Dept of the NHA and are any trainers going to pitch ?

    Oh, The Racing Trust and the Jockeys ?

    Have they all been invited, so that the outsiders, looking in, who get accused of been negative, can gauge if all these “Dead Bodies”,for the want of a better word, are serious about sitting face-to-face to thrash out issues.


    Pardon my cynicism Ladies & Gents, but these organizations have a history of disseminating information on a need-to-know basis. Very little need to disclose and no will for outsiders to know.

    If all the various groups aren’t there this evening, is becomes a futile exercise. Just a launching pad for the RA.

    On one hand, RA have decide to host this indaba but will they brush aside hard hitting issues saying they have a limited time schedule ?

    An example, the RA have no obligation to field question and supply answers I have about their detailed Stakes model. Here, I’m talking about figures way beyond the past 2018 audited figures.

    I have complex questions about their adopted policies (modus operandi) and existing business model with regards the distribution of stakes.

    They won’t want to disclose that detail to me, additionally, many of there members don’t know the fine-print thereto.

    Has labour been invited? Another meeting without an agenda?

  7. Mich says:

    So this in a RA meeting at the exclusion of us,the other colour holders? I would have gone but it is too late for me to drive to Kenilworth and besides,I am not a RA member so might not be welcomed.I feel deflated and marginalized

    1. Editor says:

      Mich we got confirmation that it was an open meeting – and the original RA notice – which probably wasnt received by non RA members – indicated that all owners and trainers were welcome

  8. George says:

    The RA and SAFA share the same brain Nobody in the RA and SAFA knows what is going to happen next


    Bravo to George, Mich, Jack & J. Swersky for illuminating Larry Wainstein’s lack of common sense & courtesy.
