    Is this a matter of cut and run or are there other positive reasons?

  2. Frans says:

    What positive reason can there be for a long time owner/ trainer to be leaving the game? Regrettably the numbers no longer stack up and to try and cover costs with stakes is now an impossibility. Grant Maroun is but one of many who will exit the game frustrated and angry at the turn of events.
    With the long time gross mis-management and continued arrogance of executives within Phumelela ( Open bet players ‘ stealing from owners’!!!!) there can be no doubt that things are still going to get a lot worse before they get better.

  3. Grant says:

    Hi Frans you are spot on. This is one of the hardest things I have had to do but I don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel.

  4. Andre says:

    From what I’ve read in all the comments (this and other articles) it seems to me that the industry is in serious turmoil, to say the least.
    My question is what is going to be dine to sort out all, and I mean ALL, the problems? Ormond Ferraris, Joey Ramsden, Grant Maroun and most likely a plethora of Kimberley trainers, just to name a few, have left and are due to leave the industry; what odds Mike de Kock and soon there after the likes of Sean Tarry and the Snaith’s also leave our shores? Me thinks that once the protocols have been sorted out, the exodus avalanche will start in earnest.
    What do the 2, 5, 10 and 20 year plans envisage for the industry? Exactly how transparent is the game and exactly whose interests are they catering for and do they bear at heart?
    Sorry to say but Grant is right ….. there just isn’t a light at the end of the tunnel.
    If the industry’s brains trust can’t find a solution, surely they can look at the industries in other countries as a guide, or what?

  5. Francois Van Ghent says:

    I also left the racehorse ownership…. no light and no tunnel…. the tunnel is already closed….

  6. Chris Swart says:

    Being physically threatened by LW was probably the last straw Grant. I wish you well ahead, a business decision to hang things up is never easy

  7. hilton witz says:

    i never thought i would see the day that i opened a gauteng racecard and would not see a trainer with the surname Maroun in it..Going back to robert maroun then we had buddy ,dean, bradley and now grant …All very good trainers ..
