The 2015 Racing Association Highveld Feature Season Awards were held on Saturday evening at Turffontein Racecourse. This event, which is hosted by the Racing Association in conjunction with Phumelela Gaming, not only sees accolades given to the very best within the sport of horseracing in South Africa, but also recognises some of the younger players and owners as well as those who do the most for equine welfare.
Flashback – 2014 Castle Tankard. Equina followed by A King Is Born, Coltrane, Super Trouper.
Fourteen horses will line-up for the prestigious $50 000 Gr1 Castle Tankard to be run over 2000m at Borrowdale Park today, and I am prepared to be surprised by the outcome.
The Thoroughbred Breeders Association of South Africa (TBA) wishes to advise that the TBA and Caroline Simpson have mutually agreed to terminate their employment relationship with immediate effect.
We wish Caroline all the best in her future endeavours.
