THURSDAY’s race meeting on the Vaal Classic Track will go ahead as scheduled.

After a track inspection on Tuesday October, it was unanimously agreed that the track had recovered well enough for racing to go ahead.

The track inspection was done by among others Alfie Little, National Operations Manager of Phumelela Gaming and Leisure (PGL), Craig Mayhew representing trainers, Chief Stipendiary Steward Lyle Anderson, PGL management, the track managers as well as the senior jockey on duty Deon Sampson.

Horses were galloped from the 1600m mark and the track was found to be in racing condition.

For Thursday’s meeting the false rail will be moved to 1.5m around the turn.

This follows after the race meetings scheduled for the Vaal Classic track on Thursday 20 September and Thursday 27 September were moved to the Turffontein Inside track in order to allow the Vaal Classic track to recover after a late cold spell and accompanying black frost.
