The Port Elizabeth racing fraternity would love to see the World Sports Betting East Cape Poly Challenge been upgraded from Non-Black Type to Listed status.
Champion trainer Alan Greeff led the call for an upgrade in status after winning the third and last leg of the Challenge on Friday at the Fairview Polytrack with Lord Windermere.
“My stable did well by winning two of the three races. WSB is doing very well with this series and I think the time is ripe for an upgrade to Listed status,” Greeff said.
The Sharon Kotzen trained Lets Play Ball won the consolation bonus of R50 000 for his owners as the horse that performed the best over the three legs.
Lets Play ball is owned by Andy Williams, Len Blooch and Tony de Charmoy.
“We are grateful for the bonus. This series certainly makes it more interesting for the trainers and owners,” Kotzen said in thanking WSB.
The marketing manager of WSB, Ryno du Plessis, thanked all the trainers and owners that were involved in the Challenge.
“It was another good one,” he said.
