Festival gets new sponsor

2015-07-29 06:00

THE sport of horse racing welcomes World Sports Betting as one of the sponsors of the Flamingo Park Festival, the first feature meeting of the 2015-’16 season.

Candice Langley from Phumelela Gaming confirmed in a press release that they would sponsor the R135 000 World Sports Betting Flamingo Sprint over 1 000 m on Saturday (01/08). She further stated that Kimberley’s biggest racing weekend would commence with the Racing Association’s (RA) Northern Cape Awards, which will honour the sport’s regional stakeholders who have excelled throughout the season, whilst runners participating in the feature races will be “auctioned off” with a percentage of the takings being contributed to a local charity.

Saturday’s feature races promise to also include the RA Diamond Stayers Handicap, as well as the RA Flamingo Mile. Winning owners of the RA Bonus races will receive a R10 000 cheque, whilst the grooms of the best-turned-out runner of each race will also receive a bonus.

A bevy of children’s activities will be on offer.
