Phumelela has completed an internal investigation into the circumstances surrounding the abandonment of Thursday’s race meeting on the Vaal Sand after just two races.
Jockeys claimed after the second race that the going was inconsistent and unsafe.
The talented Entisaar
The Australian-bred Entisaar was crowned Champion 2yo filly at the Highveld Feature Season awards last Saturday evening. The daughter of More Than Ready looks nicely poised, with her stablemate Shaama, to give Mike De Kock an Allan Robertson double after the outstanding Alboran Sea won the race last year.
The National Horseracing Authority confirms that an investigation was held at its offices on Friday 22 May 2015, into the current condition of the Vaal Sand Track. In particular, the meeting held on 12 February 2015, which was moved after the running of Race 1 from the sand track to the grass track and the abandonment of the meeting held at the Vaal Racecourse on Thursday 21 May 2015 after the running of Race 2.
