This theme perfectly captures the elegance of horseracing and the vibrant energy of Johannesburg – the home of Turffontein racecourse. Horseracing silks are symbols of pride and heritage and are reflected in this year’s Summer Cup logo – which pays homage to the previous five winners of this historic event.  In this great city, we are diverse and also immensely proud. We encourage everyone to show off their individual style at the Betway Summer Cup 2024,” said Fundi Sithebe, Chief Executive Officer of 4Racing.
