Gold Circle have responded to a suggestion by a Sporting Post reader to publish trainers comments on first timers and rested horses.

The initiative will be activated with effect from Sunday’s Hollywoodbets Greyville racemeeting.

This brings KZN in line with the national policy.

The National Racing Bureau will disseminate the comments to all publications.

  1. Editor says:

    Just for clarity – the Western Cape is the only region to have made the comments a local condition and thus compulsory.
    In all other regions, now including KZN, comments are canvassed but optional.

  2. Kenny Masilela says:

    Well done Hilton for shaking the tree.

  3. Michael Jacobs says:

    Now we need Gold Circle to restore the runner format as per other provinces. The draw format is alienating so many punters. I personally steer clear of KZN racing, as I prefer the horses to be tabulated by weight then draw order.

  4. G McDonald says:

    Hold it there.Was it not Gold Circle who came out with this ,First timer/rested horses comments.
    In October 2016 this appeared in the Sporting Post.
    ‘You may phone me when Gold Circle pays my rent’, was the quip from one PE-based trainer after being contacted in terms of the KZN racing operator’s new initiative whereby comments are solicited from trainers on their first-timers.
    The whole idea behind the move to publish the information is to provide punters with more transparency and the tools required to make better informed decisions.
    Or or is this something new that Gold Circle is joining.

  5. M(artin)Gram(atica) says:

    I am a part owner of 4 horses. There are little to no incentives received from any sector of the racing structure to own a horse. My instruction to my trainers has been to make no comment on the wellbeing of my horses When I have had my bet I have no problem saying we are hoping for a good run.
