The Racing South Africa Charity Turf Challenge offers prizes of R130 000 and will be run over the course of the KZN Champions Season from KRA Guineas Day on 4 May and culminates on Super Saturday 27 July.

The Charity Turf Challenge is an exciting competition that offers horseracing fans a unique opportunity to test their skill.

Racing South Africa, the competition host, will provide entry forms online and at tote outlets countrywide with a guide list of horses that are projected to be campaigning in KZN during Champions Season. Only horses from this list are eligible.

The aim of the Charity Turf Challenge is to select a team of horses you feel are most likely to score points during the period of Champions Season.

A list of all the Graded races is provided and whilst the emphasis remains on these feature races, all winners throughout the country will be eligible to earn points.

The competition deadline  is 13H00 on Saturday, 4 May.

The entrant with the most points at the conclusion of the competition will win R100 000, second placed R20 000 and third placed R10 000.

The hugely popular stand-alone prize is on Vodacom Durban July Day, also featuring the Gr1 Garden Province Stakes, the Gr2 Gold Vase and the Gr3 Campanajo Stakes, run on Saturday, 6 July at Greyville Racecourse.

The prize for the entrant with the most points earned on this day ONLY, is R20 000!

A fully revamped online entry system(via www.racingsouthafrica.co.za)  is available. Multiple entries are welcomed as this gives you more than one combination to run for you during the season.

The cost of entering is R50 per entry of a team of 10 horses.

The competition is in the name of a very good cause to secure the future of the sport.

The African Horse Sickness Trust (Reg. No. IT 2043/2005/PMB) is the 2013 Charity Turf Challenge beneficiary. The AHS Trust was formed to represent industry stakeholders, and is currently gathering important research data from all suspected cases reported.
