Cruzador’s All-Africa 1000m record won’t stand
Operator’s timing device failed to kick in
Two-year-old colt Cruzador (11-4) set the course and All-Africa record for 1000m when he completed the distance in a lightning 54,19s at Fairview Racecourse in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) on Friday. The record won’t be recognised, however, because the contest wasn’t electronically clocked by the racing operator, Phumelela Gaming & Leisure.
