The Grande Thabure Horse race staging which was planned to take place on 2 November this year at the Bloemfontein Equestrian Centre in Bloemfontein, has been postponed until April 2020.

Organisers cited readiness of the racetrack and further engagement of stakeholders as reasons for postponing the planned horse racing event.

Maleshoane Dichabe, spokesperson, said the postponement was to get the track technically ready on time and give stakeholders more time to engage all their internal and external processes necessary for the execution of assistance to stage the event.

The Grande Thabure is curated in line with the established premier traditional horse racing event in the Eastern Cape known as Berlin November.
