Purchases Interest in Johannesburg Track JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, May 22— Reuters.— One of the most important racing deals in South African turf history was concluded today when the Vereeniging Turf Club purchased the controlling interest in the Germiston Sporting Club for an amount understood to be well in excess of 00,000. The new owners also hope to acquire the remaining shares which are held in England. The Vereeniging Turf Club recently acquired the Auckland Park Racing Club, which is located three miles outside of Johannesburg. The club intends to convert these racing plants and any others it may acquire into non-proprietary clubs within the next six months.
