Kotzen’s Hardfallingrain The Pointer

Watch the track report - first off at 12h35

Players of today’s Kenilworth card will need to await the track and a going report after a massive cold front hit the Western Cape on Friday evening as gale force winds and heavy rain set in.

The weather could be an omen for Glen Kotzen’s R160 000 Cape Ready To Run graduate Hardfallingrain – a son of exciting sire Soft Falling Rain – who makes his debut in the third race, the Pick 6 opener.

See his trainer’s comments below.

Winds buffeting the city and surrounds reached  between 60 and 75km/h overnight and up to 50mm of rainfall  was expected over the weekend.

Early morning thundershowers are forecast today over the south-western parts of the Western Cape, as well as along the south coast in the evening. Otherwise, it will be cloudy and cold with isolated to scattered showers and thundershowers.

The false rail on the winter course is set at 2m out from the 1700m with a 6m spur at the 470m mark.

Apprentice Liam Tarentaal is medically indisposed and does not ride today.
