Back in time...

From the archives: Andrew Bon interviews Gary Player about this historic day.

Tradition demands that Royal Ascot should maintain some composure at all times but the sangfroid slipped on the Thursday afternoon in June 2013 as the Queen became the first reigning monarch in the 207-year history of the Gold Cup to win the Royal meeting's most famous race. Estimate, the 7-2 favourite, delivered the result that most of the Ladies' Day crowd wanted to see and even a big-screen replay of the winning owner's reaction in the final furlong was enough to raise a cheer.

Turffontein and Vaal Race Courses

Spring Turf Treatment At Turffontein And Vaal Racecourse

A look back one year ago when this video was produced. I thought it worth another look. - Editor

"What I’d like this feature to cover is the methods our track guys use to prepare the track with specific reference to the annual spring treatments that take place at this time of year. How they deal with track depressions and undulations that develop with wear and tear, best practice with fertilizer applications, compaction relief, turf growth etc. and how these spring treatments are staggered between the various tracks to keep the show on the road all year round.

"As mentioned, we are also embarking on some major enhancements to the Turffontein Inside track and the Vaal Classic track - both of which will have their bends widened significantly this year, thereby providing additional rail movement opportunities to better spread the wear and tear in these critical areas. These initiatives will also create a more sweeping bend to enhance the tracks and the installation of permanent spurs / cutaways at the top of the home straights to create fairer racing too. These major projects are being done in-house by our teams and they will be best placed to give you more details. This hot on the heels of the widening of the common pull up area at Turffontein recently."
