Harness Racing Trots Back

The Gold Circle KZN chapter board has voted to re-instate harness racing following a three month sabbatical. HRSA chairman Dean Latimer said that the next harness race is now programmed to be run at Clairwood on Sunday 19th December. “This is great news and a pragmatic decision which secures us with racing venues for a 12 month minimum period.”

Latimer confirmed that negotiations are well underway for a dedicated harness racing track-site in Ballito and that a full re-location of operations was hoped for in 2011/12.

Meanwhile, a further batch of Swedish imports have arrived in South Africa and a consignment of Trotteurs Francaise are due to land in February. Latimer estimates that a pool of 130 standardbred horses would be required in order to stage the 2015 World Trotting Conference and World Driving Championships in South Africa.
