|Possible Canon Gold Cup Postponement|
Due to the heavy rain fall in Durban this week, Gold Circle are considering postponing the Canon Gold Cup “Super Saturday” to Sunday 31 July 2011. Gill Simpkins of Gold Circle has advised they will only know and be able to make a decision at 1pm on Friday afternoon, after they have assessed the track.
The Gold Cup meeting sees the end of the racing season for 2010-11 and consists of four Grade 1 races, including the Champions Cup, Premiers Stakes, Thekweni Stakes and the Canon Gold Cup.
Gold Circle have also advised that the Royal Durban Golf Course is waterlogged and is regrettably closed for parking for the Canon Gold Cup meeting.
Gold Circle has however made arrangements with the Durban Metro Police for racegoers to park their cars on the traffic islands around Greyville Racecourse.Courtesy mini buses branded with the Canon Gold Cup logo will be running shuttles around the course to ferry racegoers from their cars to the main Greyville entrance. Refunds on parking tickets already purchased will be made on raceday at the general office near the parade ring.For further information telephone 031-314 1672.
