Kenilworth – Early Start & End

A super Saturday menu of racing action starts at 05h00

This coming Saturday’s race meeting at Kenilworth will start and end early in order to enable the first four races to be included on the PMU (French tote) betting menu.

The first race at Kenilworth will start at 11h15 with 30-minute intervals between the first four races. The last of the eight races at the track will be run 15h30.

French tote betting turnovers on South African races in such instances are huge and starting and ending the meeting early will earn significant revenue for the horseracing and tote betting operators in this country.

There will be an abundance of five-star action for horseracing fans to bet on before and after the Kenilworth meeting.

The eLAN Gold Cup race meeting at Greyville also takes place on Saturday with a 12-race programme, beginning at noon and ending at 19h40.

There’s also racing from Mauritius, Borrowdale Park in Zimbabwe and Ascot in England. The Ascot fixture includes the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes, the premier race for older horses on the English horseracing calendar.

The Gold Cup will be run at 16h20 and the King George 20 minutes later.

The day kicks off just after 05h00 with flat racing from five Australian racecourses.
