Trainer Alan Greeff saddled 7 winners on the 9 race card and Greg Cheyne rode 5 winners on the day. Well done to both.


Going through the last 30 rides as at 26 January 2020 of our jockeys I find the heavyweight jockeys, Lerena and Marcus, leading the way. Lerena tops with 11 winning rides from his last 30 and Marcus second on 9 winners.

These type of stats vary from time to time, however, it makes one wonder what the numbers would look like if either of these riders came to scale as a lightweight jockey.

Formlines Finder Update

The formlines finder tool from the main menu has been speeded up.

This tool is a great help to determining the form of horses. However, previously the tool was slow and sometimes timed out.

To resolve this annoyance the tool has been reworked to make it faster.

Durban Racecards - New feature

Goldcircle together with Hollywood Bets have implemented a change of format with the racecards for Natal racing.

The idea is to match the saddlecloth number according to the draw, similar to the way its done in the USA. This has never been done before in SA and punters are finding it hard to adjust.

While Hollywood together with Goldcircle have a great record for being innovate it seems they have pushed the wrong button with this one. Still one must give them 10/10 because their motive is trying to do something new for the racegoer. Bearing this in mind that it was said at the outset that it's experimental. So, hopefully they will revert back to the old format as soon as possible.

Racing participants are used to scanning over race information in a particular fashion and with all the years of the old format never changing this has allowed punters to make their selections based on habit of what experience has instilled into them over the decades.

The change now forces punters to change the way they look at the card with continual cross reference of weights causing a break of thought and all this takes time to dissect and time is something punters don't really have.

To help the punter, Formgrids has added a feature on the Card A that allows the punter to sort the runners in weight order. You'll see it in the Options and Tools bar. Just look for Sort. You can choose Wgh for weight or No for the saddle number.

We hope that makes it easier for you.
