All Set For SA’s Biggest Betting Bonanza!

First is off at 11h45

The Hollywoodbets Durban July is South Africa’s traditional biggest day of betting and the 128th renewal of Africa’s greatest horserace gets a turbo boost courtesy of the Hong Kong World Pool today.

An exciting version of international commingling, combining the finest racing from around the world with the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s betting operation, which boasts the deepest and most liquid pari-mutuel pools internationally, the World Pool makes its inaugural appearance at the 2024 Hollywoodbets Durban July.

Regular and once-a-year punters will be able to bet with Tabgold into the Hong Kong World Pools on the headliner (Race 7 – off at 16h00), and the Ridgemont Gr1 Garden Province Stakes (Race 8 – off at 17h00).

The World Pool debut includes five bet types, viz. Win, Place, Exacta, Quinella, Swinger and Trifecta, and will be available to punters in over 28 countries worldwide.

The place dividend on the featured races will be payable on the first three horses home.

“The massive liquidity injected by the national interest in this great race, and boosted for the first time by the World Pool and the three places, sets the bar for some very decent place dividends in what is a competitive race and a vintage clash of the generations. We are all set for a fascinating finish with South Africa’s top thoroughbreds in action on the day,” said Gold Circle Commercial Executive, Dean Sawarjath.

World Pool will be operational in three countries this weekend, with a total of seven races, including four Grade 1’s across South Africa, Britain and Germany, being part of the globally commingled pools, run and powered by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

The first race at Hollywoodbets Greyville is off at 11h45 South African time (CAT).
