Newsflash: Vaal Tuesday

Gallops to decide fate of Tuesday’s Vaal race meeting

Since Saturday’s Vaal meeting abandonment and after receiving 50.5mm of rain, a further 46mm of rain has fallen as of Monday afternoon, with the penetrometer reading currently sitting at 30 (heavy).

As we are concerned with the forecast of more rains overnight and through Tuesday, gallops have been arranged for 07h00 on Tuesday morning to assess the underfoot conditions.

A further update will follow.

    Ofcourse it’s abandoned. Even with a straight course available up to a mile.

    Oh well. More chance for punters to settle into betting on UK racing

    As a youngster, long ago, I was always upset on rainy days when camping… Ma always use to say we cannot change the weather…

    Watching my grand kids, they’re upset when it’s not raining, they might to be told to play outside 😂

    And then in my day Wet coal was no issue in generating power.

    Happy Punting, we still have QM Jackpots and other overseas stuff 👍

  4. Avril says:

    Hard to understand why an all weather track was not considered a viable option for the Vaal

  5. George says:

    AW is no panacea and it is decidedly not AW when large weather variations are the norm as experienced on the Highveld.

  6. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Nah, no chance. Phumelela closes things down, they don’t open new…

    In Afr we say

    True story
