Charles Newcombe has settled in quickly at Fairview as the new track manager.

He recently took over from the retired Kleintjie Badenhorst and Newcombe will continue to play a key role in the sport that he loves so dearly.

Charles is an avid horseman who grew up on a dairy farm in Alexandria, about 100 kilometres from Port Elizabeth. He has been involved in racing for 15 years now, starting as a handler and he was the Clerk of Scales at Fairview since 2013.

The current drought in the Eastern Cape is just one of the many challenges that Newcombe will have to deal with to keep Fairview ticking over, but there is no doubt that the grass and polytrack in Port Elizabeth are in good hands.
