This is the media release sent out today from Gold Circle:
Following 200mm of rain at Greyville over the past 36 hours, Gold Circle has decided to postpone the 2016 eLan Gold Cup by a day to Sunday 31 July, with all race times remaining as published.
“The weather forecast from Thursday is pretty good and we are hoping the extra 24 hours will allow the track to dry sufficiently. Strong winds are also forecast for Saturday and this should further assist in the drying process,” said Gold Circle Racing Executive Raf Sheik.
As a consequence of Gold Circle’s decision, Phumelela has agreed to bring forward their race meeting scheduled for Sunday to Saturday 30 July to fill the void left by the postponement of the eLan Gold Cup.
