Rain plays havoc with racing

Turffontein meeting postponed until Monday.

We were set to race at Turffontein on Sunday but the meeting has now been postponed till Monday. The country badly needs all the rain and we welcome it. In fact, the racing people welcome it as well because a very firm track is not ideal to race on.
