Gold Cup Gets Headline Sponsor

First big day of new season gets a sponsor

Prosport International and Gold Circle are pleased to welcome World Sports Betting as the headline sponsor for the 100th running of the Gold Cup on Saturday 29 August at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

The World Sports Betting Gold Cup is South Africa’s premier race for stayers and traditionally brings the curtain down on Champions Season in KZN.

World Sports Betting will also sponsor the Gr1 Mercury Sprint over 1200m and the Gr1 Champions Cup over 1800m, the outcomes of which could be significant insofar as the Equus Awards are concerned.

“The Prosport and Gold Circle teams have done a fantastic job to make sure the centennial running of the Gold Cup takes place no matter the challenges, and it’s an honour for us to come on board as a sponsor,” said World Sports Betting Marketing Manager, Ryno Du Plessis. “

The prestigious Champions Cup has run with our name attached to it before, but to include the Gold Cup and Mercury Sprint is hopefully the start of something bigger for WSB in the KZN racing arenas. WSB takes pride in being the leading bookmaker for local racing and patrons can always rely on us to price up first and with the most competitive odds. Anyone who hasn’t done so yet is welcome to register now at and Bet with the Best,” Du Plessis added.
