KZN Racing Awards, you get to vote!

The annual KZN Racing Awards will take place at the Elangeni Hotel in Durban on the evening of Tuesday, August 29, 2017.


The awards night is a fun-filled evening of outstanding entertainment, good food and of course the honouring of the best locally-trained horses, personalities and their achievements over the past season and also the three months of South Africa’s Champion Season.


There is also public voting for “Ride of the Season”. The judges have picked out what they thought were five of the best rides during Champions Season and asked the public to vote for the jockey who they think deserves the award.


To cast your vote go to the Gold Circle Facebook page or the SA Racing App.
