PHUMELELA MEDIA RELEASE

SUBJECT: Dual role for Sawarjith

DATE: Wednesday 25 March 2020

RELEASED BY: Phumelela Gaming


Dean Sawarjith, who heads up Phumelela’s international operations, has been given the added responsibility of managing Tellytrack with immediate effect.

Tellytrack is a vital component of South African horseracing in that it is the industry’s television shopfront locally and internationally.

Sawarjith takes over from Betting and Marketing executive Rob Scott, who temporarily took back the reins at Tellytrack following the resignation of Colleen Goodman a few months ago.

“It’s a sound move in all respects,” said Phumelela CEO John Stuart. “It is vital during these turbulent times that there is total focus on revenue generation by betting operations and Dean’s appointment will enable Rob Scott to focus entirely on this vital area of the business, which also includes the immediate support areas of marketing and communications.

“In addition, the international division is arguably one of Tellytrack’s most important customers insofar that it generates a major portion of Phumelela’s revenue and contributes directly to the sustainability of South African horseracing through the participation of Gold Circle and Kenilworth Racing,” added Stuart.

Sawarjith is particularly well equipped to manage Tellytrack with more than 20 years’ experience in various aspects of horseracing.

He started out at Gold Circle and was deployed in various positions before a short move to Deloitte, where he immediately realised horseracing was in his blood. He soon re-joined Gold Circle and was Forensic Audit Manager there before moving to Phumelela’s international division, then headed up by Stuart.

He quickly became Stuart’s right-hand man and played a key role in formulating the division’s strategies, as well as managing the Eastern Hemisphere and overseeing the customisation of the Tellytrack picture for international customers.

Sawarjith was given the responsibility of running the international division when Stuart was promoted to Phumelela CEO in September 2018.

“Managing both Tellytrack and International is a huge responsibility, but I am looking forward to the challenges at an extraordinarily difficult time for the industry,” said Sawarjith. “I am honoured by the trust placed in me by board members and management.”

The key phrase in all that buff is "added responsibility".

Reminds me a lot of the frog in the pot, slowly but surely the temperature is being raised.

Keep saying the dogs is the answer to increase turnover.
They run on time, have established form and no jockey factor.

....they starve the dogs to make them chase for food rewards....tie up toes with elastic bands to slow them down....
lets not go there.....my maternal grandfather had a very good friend here many many years ago that took in these hounds to rehabilitate them when dog racing was finally banned here....:ohmy:

Not under proper controlled racing jurisdiction. All checks and balances in place.
There was gaff tracks, which is equivalent to bush racing?
Dog racing under proper rules and regulations is equivalent to horse racing.

.....yeah that was the big problem back in the day.....it was not policed properly and got a bad rap with a certain criminal element running the show with doped and nobbled dogs.....the same okes then migrated into horse racing but were quickly caught and banned....:unsure:

New boss, then certainly hope they do have the B team in there today because quite frankly it has been pathetic coverage. No Tote boards scrolling, no time to next race indicated, no mention of upcoming exotics to build up pools (quickmix1 etc.). Seems the basics gone on lockdown as well.

Have to agree.
They could have at least shown the replay but instead they just show the result. There's nothing more frustrating than losing your money in the dark.

Whoever the team is in there has problems operating the software they work with. They have started to show the betting sheet from WSB for upcoming race on full screen and switch to the race just as they about to run. Just show us the *** live feed with the normal betting scroll at the bottom indicating all the info we need to know - It is really not difficult. Wow.

......during this sparce racing coverage .....maybe time to do some repairs/maintenance to equipment/lines as the coverage is sporadic although few venues are broadcast....the pictures to Ozz broke down mid race again and all we see is a betting screen.....:huh:

Hi Bob
The breakup on the Australian feed this morning was caused by a solar outage.
