Local horse racing takes place at the Vaal Racetrack on Thursday with the first race off at 12:10 and the 8th and final race at 16:20.
The card has a very open look to it and finding a Pick Six Banker will be tough and we think it may pay to wait until the 7th and the penultimate leg of the Pick Six where Horse No. 1, Destinys Game is currently a 2/1 favourite.
