Is this Zackey character for real, or does he just take the p!ss all the time. He seems to be the praise singer for "MDK", Tarry, Clyde Basel and everything Phumelela. It's becoming

Pops, you miss the point entirely and your reasoning is unsound. The Durban July Handicap is a pattern race with a unique history. The CTS race exists entirely because of the sponsor. Were the sponsor to withdraw tomorrow the CTS sales race would not exist, while the July would run on, sponsor or no sponsor.

Editor, do you think if two small stables/owners had three runners between that could not make it to Cape Town and these three horses were bottom of betting boards.
But Tarry with 4 of Van Niekerks runners and De Kock's óne runner were in Cape Town ready to run on the Saturday,would we be saying---
surely the idea is to get every owner who bought a horse at the 2018 sale a fair chance to run?
Do you think de Kock and Tarry would wait 3 weeks with their

Frankie Zackey...Sponcers and Computicket as a incentive by right should give Team MDK a serious kickback for attendance for the upcoming Cape events ... exposure will be huge and ticket sales for the events will be record

Pops, if you were sponsoring a non pattern and restricted R2.5m event would you not want some say in the date and time of the running of the race in order to maximise the ability of all runners to race. Is this really an

No Battle For The Million

Rian, the only real competition he had was from the second horse, who will now get a handicap mark after completing three runs, and who had run behind Donderweer (beaten a length) previously. The latter is rated 95 and I cannot see that the winner ran better than that here so he should stay the same..

There should however be increments to some of the horses running lower down, although outside of them running in a Maiden Handicap their rating is of little consequence (for them) until they crack their maiden.

We'll see if the official handicappers'
