Mdk praises initiative

MIKE de Kock has hailed the Gold Circle – Hollywoodbets racecourse branding initiative as a ‘one of the best things to happen to racing for decades’.

“Thank goodness that we have somebody thinking out the box at last. The manner in which Owen Heffer and his company were treated in the past – the banning of publications and the like – was plain and downright embarrassing and shameful. It’s a true mark of the man that Owen has let bygones be bygones and stepped forward to get involved in the interests of this great game. I hope that this alliance will be an example to the entire industry. I wish Hollywood and Gold Circle every success – and all stakeholders should be sitting up and thinking. Pooling skills and resources is long overdue and may KZN racing prosper,” the champion trainer told the Sporting Post.
