Eight Races At Fairview Today

First is off at 12h30 today

Today’s Fairview feature, the Listed Jockey Club Stakes, is the third leg of the Eastern Cape Fillies and Mares Challenge for 2019.

The final leg is named in recognition of the fact that the Jockey Club – now known as the National Horseracing Authority – was founded in Port Elizabeth in 1882.

Besides the total stake monies of R450 000 on offer, a Challenge bonus of R250 000 is offered to the winning connections, should a filly or mare win all three races.

Phumelela also undertook to approach breeders across the country to donate a free stallion service, should there be a series victress.

The bonus and stallion service will not be awarded in 2019 though as Snowdance’ full sister Juniper Spring won the first leg, the R150 000 Listed East Cape Breeders Stakes run over 1200m, while the second leg, the R150 000 Listed East Cape Paddock Stakes, was won by Rebel King daughter Maverick Girl.

Neither are back to contest the 2000m final leg today.

While carded for turf, both the first two leg races were switched to the polytrack in view of inclement weather having impacted on the condition of the racing surface.

Today’s programme consists of eight races on the turf- first is off at 12h30. It is also the Bipot opener.

The false rail is set today at zero to the 800m mark, with a 2,5m spur.
