Formgrids is what Joe describes and recommends as a must for USA racing, South Africa has had this for the last 10 years yet the men in charge of the future of SA racing have failed to recongnise the potential and value that Formgrids gives to the racing structure.

Breeders looking for entries

After our site upgrade to version 2 we split the Cards from the Entries. This was for a number of reasons but what we didn't know was that certain breeders looked for what horses were entered via the Breeder Search. Of course, this didn't work any more.

The good news is we have added that facility back. You will now see an "Entries" link next to the "Carded" link. Click to see where your horses have been entered.

Few glitches in V2

With testing and feedback we have encountered a few glitches in the Formgrids upgrade to Version 2 Phase 1. Considering the size of the update some problems are to be expected.

The good news is that most of these have been fixed.

On the whole, though, the upgrade went very well. Hope you are enjoying the new features :-)

J & B MET - Kenilworth - 1 Feb

J & B MET. Grade 1 race at Kenilworth.

This year’s theme, ‘Made to Conquer’, encourages the well-heeled to take charge on the grounds and dress for victory in unforgettable stylish, sophisticated and glamorous garb. After all, while tradition and pageantry may constitute the core of the historical horse race, the J&B Met is just as much about ground-breaking haute couture that challenges conventions and celebrates bold attitudes. Or, more simply, it’s about decadence, debauchery and ‘who’ you’re wearing. - Cape Town Magazine

A winner, a 2nd place and two 3rd places have come out of the formline

The formline is proving to be very good. More runners are carded: TEE JAY AR and SOLAR TRIPTYCH with a very outside chance for WAR TRAIL.

Please note that this is only one of many HOT formlines. Take your time and find some others. It's the ability to see formlines is what makes Formgrids so special.

CHINA BEAR comes in 2nd

As the formline indicated, CHINA BEAR came in a place (2nd). Didn't win but it can still come out to win in the next race. Sure it was the favourite. But the formline shows what will likely come out to win or place regardless of it's favour.

In the formline still keep a watch out for SONNY BILL and TEE JAY AR.
