Eastern Cape Gets A Stakes Increase

Good news ahead of the National Yearling Sale

More good news ahead of the sale later this week is that 4Racing has announced an 8% increase in total stakes for Eastern Cape races to R31 776 570 for the period 1 June 2023 to 28 February 2024, a considerable increase from last year’s stakes of R29 234 445 for the corresponding period.

This was made possible by a budgeted increase by 4Racing of 8% in stakes for the season.

The stakes increase has focused on beefing up the minor races, with stakes increased by 12%.

The detailed breakdown of the stakes is as follows:
