I don't think they will be racing Saturday either by the looks of things?

Cape Town is flooded and more rain forecast for the whole week ahead. I doubt that we will be able to race next week either. I doubt that the trainers are able to get much work into the horses other than on treadmills.

All this rain not helping Snaith in the trainer's title race. Tarry looks a good bet now surely ?

Please note.
After gallops were held this past Wednesday, the decision was made to abandon both the mid-week meeting and the meeting scheduled for today, July 20th. The track staff and jockeys felt that with 15-20mm forecast to fall on Thursday and Friday, it would not leave enough time for the track to recover. Unfortunately, we received 70mm over this period which has now cast major doubts over recovery for the track for the meeting on Monday, July 22.

We have therefore decided to postpone this meeting to Wednesday, July 24.
This gives the track two extra days to recover under favourable circumstances according to the latest weather forecast.

The postponement till Wednesday now serves up a period of four racemeetings over six days, including back-to-back racing across both our venues next week. We are looking forward to hosting an action packed end to the season.
