The Cape Guineas is the only Grade 1 race over 1600m for three-year-olds and one of the most prestigious horseracing events in the country. The Honour Roll includes Horse Chestnut, Captain Al, Variety Club and a dead heat in 1972 between two of the greatest milers the country has seen – Sentinel and In Full Flight.

Forus is a digital platform where you will be able to pay anyone, anywhere, anytime for free –  and the more you use it, the more you increase your chances of winning.

“We are delighted to sponsor a race with the stature of the Cape Guineas,” said Sonny Fisher, the founder of Forus. “Sponsoring a race of this nature affords us the opportunity to reach into the betting market community. We can provide an easier way of betting and those who use us will be rewarded for their support.”

Tellytrack CEO Rob Scott welcomed Forus into the horseracing fold. “We are living in a digital age and it is exciting to have a company like that as a sponsor of one of the most celebrated races in the country.

“We are proud to welcome them on board and look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

Ed – Sonny Fisher is not new to feature sponsorship. He also represented Sunshine Sweepstakes, sponsor of the Algoa Cup at the end of October. The connection between the two entities is unknown.
