Will Pays, trained by Mike and Adam Azzie, has been allotted top weight of 64.5kg for the R750,000 World Sports Betting Grand Heritage (Non- Black Type) to be run over 1475m at the Vaal on Saturday 30 September.
There were 70 runners entered for a field of 28 runners likely to face the starter in what is the country’s most populated race. Most of the local trainers have nominated runners including Champion Trainer Sean Tarry, Mike de Kock, Mike and Adam Azzie, Geoff Woodruff and Paul Peter but trainers from other centres also entered runners.
Duncan Howells, who was Champion Trainer in KwaZulu- Natal, has entered Secret Captain and Gingerbread Man, while Glen Kotzen has nominated Fellow Traveller. Port Elizabeth-based Dorrie Sham has entered Classify.
What is interesting about this race is it caters for a wide range of horses. Will Pays has a merit rating of 105 while at the other end of the scale Jim Cables is rated 61.
In order to be considered for inclusion in the final field, every horse nominated must have had at least a minimum of one run from time of first entry up to and including the time of final supplementary entries on 18 September.
Where applicable, amended weights for runs between first and final supplementary entries will be published on a weekly basis until the final weights are declared.
The maximum field will be 28 runners plus two reserve runners.
Supplementary entries close at 11am on Monday 18 September with the final weights published the following day. Declarations close at 11am on Wednesday 20 September with the fields being announced at a special event that day.
