KZN Racing – Monday Slot Moves

Important changes to programme for this week

With Hollywoodbets Scottsville having received close on 100mm of rain, the prognosis for racing there on Wednesday is extremely poor and Gold Circle has made the decision to abandon this meeting.

Instead, the race meeting which was scheduled for Hollywoodbets Greyville tomorrow Monday 23rd will be postponed to Wednesday 25th  May.

Close on 200mm of rain has fallen over the City track and there has been damage to the stable area and the jockey room which will need attention before racing can go ahead successfully and safely.

A reminder to all stakeholders and fans that the race meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday 25th May will go ahead as planned under lights on Friday night 27th May, with the Daily News 2000 race meeting set to take place as scheduled on Saturday 28th May at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

In summary, racing goes ahead in KZN this week as follows:-

  • Wednesday 25th May – Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack – postponed from Monday 23rd.
  • Friday Night 27th May – Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack – postponed from Wednesday 25th as per previous release.
  • Saturday 28th May – Hollywoodbets Greyville Turf Track – the Daily News 2000 race meeting.

    Considering that 60 percent of natal race meetings take place on the polytrack surely the decision of scrapping a very rare Hollywoodbets Scottsville race meeting on their holy grass could have been delayed by a few days giving the track 72 hours to dry out from the 100mm of rain…The pen reading before the downpour was 19 on the turn and 21 up the straight and very importantly only FIVE RACES would be run up the straight course and the other FOUR RACES would be run around the turn on the inside track …I asked for the reason a few weeks ago about the lack of a single runner in this years Hollywoodbets durban july handicap from natal based trainers ,gee i wonder if the poor race program and total lack of grass racing has anything to do with it ..IS IT that wednesday is getting to close to scotsville sprint day on the 4th of june so lets take the easy way out????
