Kimberley Racing – Safe For 2020

Northern Cape racing can breathe a sigh of relief

Phumelela has confirmed that an agreement in principle has been reached with various interested parties, which will extend horseracing at Flamingo Park in Kimberley until at least the end of 2020.

With the support of the Racing Association, Phumelela is in the process of concluding an agreement with Gold Circle that also involves Mrs Mary Slack and Hollywoodbets.

The details of the agreement are still being finalised and full details will be released in due course.

Phumelela is issuing this communication in the meanwhile because it’s vital to provide clarity on the immediate future of the venue as soon as possible, particularly for affected stakeholders in Kimberley.

Phumelela wishes to thank the Racing Association, Gold Circle, Mrs Slack and Hollywoodbets for enabling the company to jointly find a solution to keep horseracing alive in Kimberley.

    The Oppenheimers had a great hand in the development of the Diamond City. It is only fitting that Mary Slack upholds the great tradition and rescue racing in Kimberley. The Oppenheimers and Mary Slack together with her daughter Jessica are the leaders in the racing fraternity and their involvement is great for the game of the sport of Kings.
    Thanks to all concerned.
    Good riddance to Phumelela.

    Phumalela is one of the worst run courses in the country they need a change in management from the CEO to all the staff and some jockeys need to learn manners without the public they can close the place
