Parade Ring Dress Code Reminder

Racing Media Release

 

Parade Ring Dress Code Reminder

 

Johannesburg, 3 January 2024

 

Dear Trainers

 

A press release about the dress code of the parade ring (including the lead in) was issued on 22 November 2023.

 

Unfortunately, a number of trainers are ignoring the new rules and continue to enter the parade ring incorrectly attired. This makes it extremely difficult for security to control owners and connections when trainers themselves do not adhere to the dress code.

 

In addition, trainers are also allowing people with inappropriate attire to lead in horses, also in blatant disregard of the dress code rules.

 

For those who may have missed it, we set out a copy below:-

 

Parade Ring Dress Code (Men):

 

Top

Collared Shirt or Golf Shirt (No Jacket Required)

T-shirt (Jacket Required)

 

Bottom:                  

Long pants

 

Shoes:                   

Closed shoes or smart sneakers

 

NOT ALLOWED:     

Shorts, sandals, flip flops or boardshorts

 

Parade Ring Dress Code (Women):

 

Recommended:      

Dresses or ensembles (top & skirt) are recommended

 

Shoes:                   

Heels, Wedges, Smart Sandals & Smart Sneakers

 

NOT ALLOWED:     

Boardshorts, flip flops

 

Children under 16

 

Must be accompanied by an accredited adult

Must adhere to the dress code

Although the Vaal dress code is not as detailed, please note that no man wearing shorts or slops will be allowed in the parade ring or lead in area.

 

Security have been issued clear instructions not to permit access and to remove anyone from the parade ring (including trainers) who do not adhere to the dress code.

 

As previously stated, we are aiming to enhance the racing experience and standard to benefit all punters and connections and we rely on our trainer base to lead by example.

 

Ends.

Men are not allowed to use:“Shorts, sandals, flip flops or boardshorts”; and Women are not allowed to use:“Boardshorts, flip flops” So, I have to ask why did 4Q in their infinite wisdom conclude that it is okay for women to be allowed to use shorts and sandals but men are forbidden!!! WTF kind of logic is this?
Can these 4Q tarts sort out their race programming, field sizes, tote pools and incentives for stakeholders iso trying to be the fashion police. No well dressed patron attending the Turffontein dump site is going to save racing in 4Q land. Clueless from day 0 and with Cape Racing getting into full stride to turn that business around, Fundi and Savage are digging a proper hole for their investor’s cash and all the owners in 4Q land.

Reminds me of 5 kids playing dress-up...most days the few owners at the track are dressing up for themselves as there are no punters to impress...lovely notion 30 years ago buy now who really cares what you wear.... some of the best dressed owners in racing have done the very worst things to the sport so as Sugarman said..."a monkey in silk is a monkey no less"

Do you remember this threat:

"Security have been issued clear instructions not to permit access and to remove anyone from the parade ring (including trainers) who do not adhere to the dress code"

Conclusion: Security is as useless as 4Q boardroom fashion police
