Greyville Gold Cup Meeting Postponed To This Saturday
Heavy rainfall and the forecast of further downpours forced the abandonment of the Gold Cup meeting at Greyville on the weekend with the showpiece raceday now set to take place this Saturday 1 August. "The decision to postpone was not made lightly as we are well aware that the official NHA statistics, which determine the Championship in respect of various categories such as Champion Stallion, Champion Breeders, Champion Trainer, Champion Jockey etc will be finalized when the Season closes on 31 July, " said Gold Circle Racing and Marketing Executive Graeme Hawkins. The Super Saturday meeting features four Gr1 races, the Gold Cup, Thekwini Stakes, Premier's Champion Stakes and Champions Cup.
