Legendary Producer Passes

Gold Circle announced that it is with great sadness they heard of the news of the sudden passing of Raymond Rogers (66) on the morning of 8 October 2018.

Raymond was travelling with Bloodstock SA’s Michael Holmes to film Ready-to-Run gallops on the Highveld when he suffered a massive heart attack at OR Tambo International Airport and, despite the best efforts of a team of paramedics, he was declared deceased shortly thereafter.

Raymond enjoyed an illustrious career as Executive TV Producer for Gold Circle and Tellytrack, in recent years responsible for Gold Circle TV and Winning Ways. He was due for retirement at the end of December. He will be sadly missed by all his colleagues at Gold Circle and our thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.

Apart from horse racing, soccer was Raymond’s first sporting love and he was an active qualified National Football League referee during his younger days.
