Incompetence Leads The Field

What part of scratch do the controlling structure of SA racing not understand, ANALYSE THIS bolts on the way to the start, goes half way around the course then still has to compete in a race.

This is most unfair on the poor punters who had already included the well supported horse in all types of bets.

To me the decision to allow the horse to take part in the race shows a total disregard for racing's customers to say the least, some people have used the word criminal.

SA racing sadly ends 2016 much the same as it went during the year with incompetence leading the field.

Official 100 million Page Views

Sometime in January 2017 we will celebrate the 100 million pageviews milestone officially recorded by Google stats.

Although we launched Formgrids.com in 2004 our Google Stats count only started from November 2008

Unofficially we have long passed the 100 million Page View milestone but actually seeing it on Google Stats makes it official for us.

Currently we are on 98,602,798 Pageviews and looking back its nothing short of a miracle that we are still going and growing, we have had many ups and downs while providing this unique service to the South African Horseracing Industry.

While stakeholders agree that Formgrids is good for the game support from industry bosses has been minimal to say the least, while readily admitting on the one hand that our users contribute to boosting turnovers they on the other hand treat us like opposition and non co operation has been the order of the day. Its this type of shortsightedness that must bee rooted out in order for the game to grow and prosper, the moment anyone raises a voice to speak out he is ostracised and becomes the enemy, the buddy buddy systems kicks in and they close ranks and support injustice, this is the cancer racing is riddled with.

Formgrids is still a work in progress and one wonders where we would have been had support been forthcoming from the stakeholders. At one point we hosted the grids for South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, United States, Canada, United Kingdom as well as Harness racing from Sweden, however the workload was tremendous and the availability to data was limited so some countries have fallen away.

Its a pity that the late Laurie Jaffee and Graham Beck are no longer with us, those were real racing men of the type that could have stepped in and assisted us, they loved the sport above self gain and are legendary for their unselfish contributions toward growing the game, there may yet be someone of that calibre left in the game, time will tell, nevertheless we are still going thanks to you the user and to the small band of loyal advertisers who have supported us, God Willing will reach many more milestones.
