R100 000 For Top Groom On Sunday!

Announcement after running of tenth race

World Pool, the globe’s largest commingled horse racing pools created and powered by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), was recently announced as the title sponsor of our premier race for stayers, which is now known as the World Pool Gold Cup, and headlines a 10-feature race card at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Sunday, including four Grade 1 races.

South African punters will be able to participate in World Pool for races 2-10.

The World Pool Moment of the Day is an initiative introduced to all 25 World Pool events in 2023, which will land the selected winning groom on the day a massive R100 000 in prize money.

The 25 winners will then be eligible to win the World Pool Moment of the Year Award which includes a VIP trip for four to Hong Kong for either the Hong Kong Derby or 2024 FWD Champions Day.

At the World Pool Gold Cup race meeting on Sunday, horses in races 2-10 will be eligible for the World Pool Moment of the Day.

“This is a life changing prize for any groom whose horse is lucky enough to be chosen for this award. World Pool has made a significant contribution to the South African Horseracing Industry and in particular to Gold Circle and racing in the KwaZulu Natal province. We must thank the Hong Kong Jockey Club for once again entrusting the World Pool Gold Cup raceday as one of their chosen race meetings for the year. This is the climax of the South African racing season with a high class mix of speed, stamina and endurance that will be broadcast to racing fans from all around the world,” said Michel Nairac, CEO of Gold Circle.

The World Pool Moment of the Day will be announced after the running of the 10th Race and a presentation will be made to the wining groom at the annual KZN Racing Awards on 18 August.
