  1. Donald Murray says:

    Good day, could I ask the question, why if racing is not looking to rock the boat with regards the level 3 restrictions, why does the 3rd leg of the triple tiara have 14 horses confirmed when I thought races were to have a maximum of 12 confirmed?

  2. Dean says:

    I would also like to know as we wouldn’t want the government banning racing again.

    1. Editor says:

      Dean, plse update your surname

  3. g. naicker says:

    14 horses allowed in pattern/graded races. according to reg. set out .
    hope this helps.


    But more importantly, the best horse in the country is running tomorrow, Clouds Unfold.

    Hawwaam’s lucky she didn’t decide to make an appearance at Turffontein.

    Frankie Zackey…
    keeping a close eye on the tote pools since the restart of racing…I love what I see,, there’s been very little movement with the win and place pool after they have jumped..is it because we have Racing people at heart now that’s controlling our game ? absolutely…Finally we got people on board now that only wants our racing to prosper,,it’s been years since I’ve had a positive comment about our totes,,if this good behaviour continues and there’s no more money filtering through the system with 3 furlongs to go until the finishing line,, there’s no way that i’ll be supporting the OPEN BET again…Pools are on the low side as expected for now,, but I personally see a strong growth towards pools very soon…finally the manipulation of tote pools are done and dusted

  6. Satheesh says:

    Good evening. Thanks to all that were involved in getting horse racing back on track. I hope it stays on the front foot going forward and the game being played and administered by truthful heads in position. Well done.

  7. Stephen Carter says:

    Hawaam is favourably disposed towards closed meetings. No crowds, Hawaam jumps.


    Good point, Mr. Carter.

  9. Frankie says:

    Frankie Zackey…
    Lol Vardy ready to start up his engines…Clouds Unfold the best horse in SA,,what is going on with the Cape Boys have they been hit by the Covid-19

  10. Pieta Louw. says:

    Well done with your winner in the last today Rod…👍👍

  11. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Hawwaam is back alright ! Nice win

    Wow, so happy for Summer Pudding connections.Mr Danielson wasn’t out of his league 😅 Man, the 3yr old boys are unpredictable this season, but good race.

    Mr Ed, please allow, limited places to comment, but a Big Thanks to HWBets. When you deposit money, or withdraw, it’s quick, even on Weekends. 👍🏼

    1. Editor says:

      Sure Cecil
      Chat Sunday

  12. Graham Hurlstone-Jones says:

    Well that was fun !…..seems all this was done without third run after a rest, he/she will need it…etc….The cream came to the top and it was a pleasure to watch ( greyville will be a nightmare ). Why after watching over a 1000 races all over the world for 8 weeks with hardly a murmer behind the stalls we get two delays before the two big races ? I was relieved when Hawaam won and they sure dropped the bomb after a 5 minute delay in the Derby. It is not normal as you just don’t see it over seas ( yes it happens but it is rare )….weeks of prep and we still get delays, Dont speak too soon Mr Zackey, that tote started doing interesting things the weekend before racing started in SA after weeks of normality, shift change ? I dont know but when those tote favs start swapping around contrary to the actual betting then i stop playing. Royal Kitty tote fav race 5 ??? work that out, that means i do not play anymore today ( nothing has changed that I see, carryovers will carry on ). I am a fall guy for fillies and Mississippi Burning to me is the next big thing ?……I heard the NHA bloke saying its a shame the owners and punters are not at the track…..yeah right, the perfect scenario.

  13. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Hey Graham, nice to see you’re still around. Hope you’re playing, or atleast in the Punters Challenge ..

    Agree, most of us (guys) are fillies guys just Rian and me, Oupa’s now, so more into Mares 🙈

    Hawwaam, Joburg champ, good win, moderate field though, stablemate (filly), unlucky. Next time 😅

  14. Roderick Mattheyse says:

    Graham I hope you are safe in your igloo, and free from Tellytrack or you would have noticed that French and North American racing never start on time. Thanks for your contributions to the pools for only God knows how poor they would have been then

  15. Pieta Louw. says:

    Hey Cecil, as you can see I can’t tip a wheelbarrow…😳

    Volgende keer jou beurt..👍

  16. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Hey Pieta, geez after the 1st 3 legs I thought you had it.
    Nee blixem dit was moeilik 😅.

    Next time 🤞🏻 Lekker Aand
