South Africa's Postponed Gr1 Raceday On Tomorrow
The traditional season-ending Champions raceday at Greyville in Durban will take place tomorrow. Comprising four Gr1 races and a Gr2 feature, the meeting was reluctantly postponed by officials last week following a deluge of – ironically, much needed – rain. Officials were placed in a dilemma, mindful of the possible impact to the season-defining results, but were left with Hobson's Choice. The quartet of Gr1 events comprises the Gold Cup, Thekwini Stakes, Premier's Champion Stakes and the Champions Cup. The last of the events includes a mouth-watering clash between reigning Horse of the Year Legislate, who returns to a more suitable distance, against recent Gr1 July Handicap runner-up Punta Arenas.
