Drama Hits Summer Cup as all Peter horses are scratched

Drama hits the Betway Summer Cup Day in a huge embarrassment for 4Racing and racing in general as shortly before the second event of the day, the National Horseracing Authority declares that all the rest of Tony Peter's horses have been scratched for the rest of the race meeting.

TV Presenter Nico Kritsiotis interviewed the NHA's Arnold Hyde, who revealed that, following a morning inspection of Peter's Yard and a report from an investigator, they had to take action in the interest of industry integrity.

This has significantly disrupted Joburg's main race day, plunging the sport once again into the darkness of controversy with no resolution in sight.

4Racing has already been placed under huge financial pressure from the downward spiral of the tote turnovers and high overheads leaving it bleeding month after month. The operation did not need this on their biggest day.
