July Tote Betting Opens

Gold Circle expect to do R60 million

Totalisator betting for the 12 races being run at the 2019 Vodacom Durban July race meeting Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday 6 July opens at all Tabgold outlets – and on all Tabgold online platforms – on Monday 1 July,  and racing fans have many huge exotic pools to look forward to on the big day.

The Pick 6, which starts in Race 4, kicks off with a carry-over of R5-million and the pool is expected to reach a mammoth R15-million before the 1st Leg jumps at 13h35 on Saturday. Finding Pick 6 bankers in a very competitive environment is not easy but the Justin Snaith trained pair of Strathdon (Leg 1) and last season’s horse of the year Oh Susanna in the final leg, will be popular options.

The Quartet Pool on the Vodacom Durban July, Race 7 on the programme due off at 16:20, is expected to reach R16-million.

The Quartet requires punters to pick the first four runners past the post and in the Vodacom Durban July most will be relying on the three leading contenders Do It Again, Rainbow Bridge and ruling favourite Hawwaam to help solve the puzzle.

Over the years many an outsider has boosted the pay-out by finding its way into the Quartet and notable runners in this category include Twist of Fate, Doublemint, Eyes Wide Open and last year’s runner-up Made to Conquer.

But, the Pick 6 and main race Quartet apart, there are many different bet types available – catering for both the seasoned punter and the “once-a-year” racegoer.

Gold Circle is expecting turnover for the day to top the R60-million mark as ‘July Fever’ kicks into top gear over the final week.

    Often the estimates of the Pools disseminated via Tellytrack are unrealistically high.

    Now, they estimate a lowly R 15 000 00 for this years Pick Six. This is one time I think it will ease past R 20 000 000 ?

      You have inside information, you know the size of the Bloggers perm you manage..


    Looks like R 876 543 ….so far. ????????????

    I think we should apply for our own Tote license.


    By the by Karel, would you know where I could find out the reason for Bunker Hunts’ withdrawal from his last planned run ?

    1. karel says:

      lame near hind is what we have on file


    Sorry Karel, I jumped the gun. Jonathan Snaith was kind enough to respond swiftly.


    Thank you

    Hey William, you’re also a bit light with our P6, wait until my trf shows…

    You are the PA man, careful Bunker Hunt might be one run short

    Zillzaal and Marcus? Banker surely…

    Strathdon in Race 4 ?

    What’s your view. This horse has been costly for me, but probably a PA horse.
    Flichity by Farr this time? Sunsilk is definitely getting ready for The Gold Cup.

    Hope Cameron comments as well

    Evening ladies and gentlemen


    Good evening Cecil, I commented about Bunker Hunt on the other thread.

    I said there Bunker Hunt has it all to do. I have serious reservations about him winning.

    I won’t be playing Strathdon, not for me. Sunshine Silk I like but badly drawn. I like 3 other big outsiders in race 4, one being the EP raider MULTI GOLD

    I find that race very challenging but that’s type of dish for an entree.

    Until laters

    Hi my gut feeling for the race card on Saturday is that favourites will win with back end of exotics outsiders.
