The first racemeeting back after the lockdown is scheduled for Kenilworth on Workers Day, when an eight-race programme is carded.

The government green light is still awaited, but the industry is prepared to go ahead behind closed doors and under strict protocols. A directive is expected by close on Thursday.

The Kenilworth first is off at 12h35.

TAB telephone customers are reminded that the telephone and customer care call centres are operational from 8am daily during lockdown and TAB will increase the remote capacity of both if South African horseracing gets the green light to resume behind closed doors.

In addition, all TAB and Betting World sites are fully operational, which has enabled accountholders to bet from early morning until late at night during lockdown on races from Australia, Hong Kong, Sweden and the USA.

There is a Turffontein meeting on Saturday, Greyville on Sunday and a Fairview fixture on Monday.
