Kimberley Course Comes In For Praise

Cliffie Miller looks like Santa...Jannie Borman doesn't age

Trainer Leon Lotz pays a compliment to the track staff at Flamingo Park in a note to the Sporting Post mailbag.

Cliffie Miller at Flamingo Park on Monday

He writes that he went to Kimberley on Monday for the first time in a couple of years.

He was there to gallop a few of his first runners-to-be.

“I must compliment all staff working at Flamingo.

I think the course and facilities and the garden are looking exceptionally good. Well done Jaap.

Heather welcomed us with a beer outside.

Cliffie Miller looks like Santa and Jannie Borman is just not getting older.

Media Rahilly still as strong as nails.

Well done guys!”

    Rightfully so.. And not just that, every meeting there’s fields that are full.. Fair play to owners and trainers there, without Flamingo there’s nothing for our moderate horses.

    Just as every punter is important, even the one that bets R5 on a race, every horse is important, even the ones which aren’t blessed enough with lots of ability.

    We need Flamingo park more than we think..

    I concur. The Kimberley folk are known for their friendliness and welcoming attitude. There is a lot that the other centres can learn from these good hearted folks.
    as for the racing, I used to skip Flamingo Park in the past but am now a ardent supporter.
    Keep up the good work, “Kimberlites”.

    Leon, se nou vir ons, enige nuus op Flamingo se toekoms ?

    Ek is nie net nuuskierig nie, maar die 9de Des is om die draai. Was dit nie D Day nie.

    Mr Ed, unless I missed it, has there been any update on Flamingo Park (definite) deal with Gold Circle ?

    1. Editor says:

      Hi Cecil
      We were told Phumelela Racing Executive Patrick Davis on 7 November that they (Phum) were still in discussions with Gold Circle and the RA

      There are 3 meetings programmed for January 2020 – see the link

      So, where there’s life there’s hope

    I, we sincerely hope for a long term fix.
