The Hollywoodbets-Gold Circle Pick 6 minimum pool and bonus payout initiative was the talking point of a competitive Sunday’s racing at the theatre of dreams with the popular exotic paying a healthy dividend of R66 126.
The Hollywoodbets partnership with Gold Circle is clearly starting to pay dividends as South Africa’s leading bookmaker’s initiatives with the local racing operator have set KZN racing apart as a flagbearing pacesetter on the SA racing landscape.
You can’t please all the people all the time, but there is change for the better happening in the holiday province and the mere fact that the dynamics show that nothing is cast in stone and that every effort is being made to raise the bar for all stakeholders – from punters to owners and grooms. It’s a sign that racing is being given every opportunity to thrive.
And Sunday hailed the start of the brand new R750 000 KZN Sizzling Summer Challenge, a three month chase for glory for owners, trainers and jockey.

SA championship leading jockey Warren Kennedy and trainer Dennis Bosch lead the standings after the first day of action.
The guaranteed Pick 6 pool of R2 million, along with a 10% bonus if your winning Pick 6 ticket is taken on course, proved a boon for those punters who would have collected R51 256 but ended up with a payout of R66 126-90 – plus a further 10% if it was taken on course!
Also commencing on Sunday was the new trial barrier draw order where the carded horse number reflects the barrier draw of the horse.
You can do nothing – or you can do something.
KZN racing is alive and trying. It makes all the difference!
