Jackpot Two – Cape Derby Day

Saturday 22 February

TAB customers must please note that a second Jackpot (Jackpot TWO) will be in operation on both the Kenilworth and Turffontein race meetings Saturday 22 February, but the actual racecourse venue ovals must be marked to take these bets – not venue oval 9.

The normal daily Jackpot TWO pool, which is usually played by marking venue oval 9 on the Phumelela betting form, will not be operational on Saturday.

Instead TAB customers wishing to play Jackpot TWO on Saturday’s Turffontein meeting must mark venue oval TURF on the Phumelela betting form and Race 6 (leg 1 of Jackpot TWO).

To play Jackpot ONE on Turffontein mark venue oval TURF and Race 5 as normal.

Jackpot TWO at Kenilworth must be played by marking venue oval WCAPE and Race 6 (leg 1 of Jackpot TWO on the meeting).

To play Jackpot ONE on Kenilworth mark venue oval WCAPE and Race 5 as normal.

Utilising venue oval 9 for the second jackpot was only introduced because of issues with the tickets going forward and will-pay displays.

Based on the recent Gauteng Guineas race meeting at Turffontein, it appears that these issues have been resolved and hence this Saturday a second Jackpot will be offered on both South African race meetings on an experimental basis using the actual racecourse venue ovals.

This trial will be repeated on Monday. If successful, the racecourse venue number and Leg 1 race number will be used in future instead of venue oval 9.

An update will be issued after the tests have been completed.
