4Racing is pleased to announce its strategy around fixtures and stakes for the 2022 calendar year, which will see 240 fixtures proposed at 4Racing venues, and stakes increased from R186 million in 2021 to R207 million in 2022.

4Racing is pleased to announce its strategy around fixtures and stakes for the 2022 calendar year, which will see 240 fixtures proposed at 4Racing venues, and stakes increased from R186 million in 2021 to R207 million in 2022.

As 4Racing prepares to take over the assets and business of horseracing from Phumelela on 1 December 2021, the strategy around fixtures and stakes will be to develop a seasonal approach to stakes, whereby the minor races in each region will carry an enhanced stakes level in-season as compared to out-of-season.

It is anticipated that 4Racing will assume the management of Kenilworth Racing in due course via a management agreement.

The racing seasons in the three regions have been identified by 4Racing as follows:

–        Highveld – 1 November to 30 April 

–        Western Cape – 1 November to 28 February

–        Eastern Cape – 1 August to 31 October

The new racing season dovetails well with the KZN winter season that runs from 1 May to 31 July. The plan is to encourage the best horses in each racing region to follow the seasonal roadshow nationally as far as possible.
