Cash prizes for grooms on  Summer Cup Day!

Gauteng’s Heversham Park Stud will be sponsoring the ‘Best Turned Out’ horse for all of the 10 races on 2022 Betway Summer Cup Day this Saturday, adding to the sponsorships and prizes already on offer. A cash prize of R1,000 will be awarded to the groom of the horse adjudged ‘Best Turned Out’ for every race.

The prizes will be awarded in the parade ring after the saddling and parade procedures, when runners are on their way to the start for every respective race. Trainers are requested to inform their grooms of this incentive to ensure that they listen to announcements on track and be available to receive their prizes should their names be announced.

Kat Riley of Heversham Park commented: “This is a gesture from us to give something back to the grooms who do much of the hard work behind the scenes. It also serves as encouragement to them, to do just that little bit extra to bring their respective runners to the track in tip-top condition for a big day like this. We are proud to be involved with Betway and 4Racing in Johannesburg’s flagship race.”
