The Winner That Wasn’t

More novel ways to get interviewed on TellyTrack

Gold Circle regrets and apologises for any embarrassment or inconvenience caused to the affected parties for the incorrect result being posted on course in the second race at Kenilworth on Wednesday, October 27.

At the finish of the race there was very little separating the Piet Steyn-trained One And Only and the Dean Kannemeyer-trained Spanish Affair.

It appears that an employee posted the result of the very close finish on the indicator board, based on the commentator’s call and the television image, without waiting for the result to be officially announced by the judges.

As a result the connections of the second placed horse were then interviewed on Tellytrack as the winning connections.

Statements have been taken from the officials concerned and an enquiry is to be held into the incident.
