Another Meeting Moves

Officials and jockey and trainer overlap

2 Uncle Tommy wins RA Flamingo MileThe Flamingo Park Festival racemeeting has been moved from August 1 to Saturday August 8, due to the clash with the postponed Super Saturday meeting at Greyville, a big day which will now take place on August 1.

The Scottsville meeting scheduled for Sunday August 9 will move a day forward to August 8 and will run alongside the Flamingo Festival, whilst the Turffontein meeting scheduled for August 8 will now be on August 9.

The reason for the swap is because the same group of stipendiary stewards and other officials are used for both the Turffontein and Kimberley centres, while there would also be a clash of interests for jockeys and trainers.
