The Winning World Sports Betting Cape Town Met Quartet

The big race is off at 16h45

In the countdown to Cape Racing’s own Super Saturday, Sporting Post readers are invited to join the chase for the projected R4 million World Sports Betting Cape Town Met quartet.

With the kind compliments of Hollywoodbets, the Sporting Post is offering a R1000 betting voucher to the reader who tips the top four in the ninth race (16h45) at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday 27 January.

It’s simple:

  • Only one entry per person is permitted.
  • Provide your top four numbers in your selected order.
  • Use the comments platform on this post to let us have your entry– note comments will not be published and will be unlocked on closing at 15h00 on Saturday.
  • Please remember to quote your name and surname, as well as a mobile number, and please ensure your email address is valid.

While the World Sports Betting Cape Town Met field has been reduced to 12 runners with the withdrawal of Sean Tarry hope Bless My Stars, the stage is set for a great contest that looks up for the taking by KZN champion See It Again.

See It Again ticks every box in terms of supremacy and preparation, and it’s difficult not to see him winning easily.

After last year’s traffic issues in a 19 horse field, the 12 runners in Saturday’s 162nd renewal should not encounter the same drama.

A reminder that punters could win big in the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge on the World Sports Betting Cape Town Met raceday on Saturday 27 January. All you have to do is make your Punters’ Challenge selections for Hollywoodbets Kenilworth and you could win an estimated *R3 Million Jackpot prize for selecting all the winners on the day. There’s also a massive *R200 000 for placing in the Top 50 on the leaderboard and a must-be-won prize of *R200 000 for the punter/s who selects the most winners on the day. *Amounts subject to Bet Slip bonus rules

The Sporting Post spoke to Cape Racing’s Justin Vermaak this week about the field size.

“I am a bit perplexed as to the perceived ‘disappointment’ of the size of the final field expressed on social media. The Met is a weight-for-age race and never attracts a massive field. In 2023 we had 19 horses, in 2022 and 2021 there were 11, while in 2020 and 2019 we had 13,” observed Vermaak.

He also drew our attention to the two twenty horse fields on the day, and the 169 runners that will contest the 11 races at an average of 15.36 per race.

“These are massive numbers which some people are ignoring based on the size of the Met field,” concluded Vermaak.

And a massive day it is going to be!

A projected R10 million Pick 6 pool and a quartet expected to reach R4 million in the World Sports Betting Cape Town Met (Race 9) are bound to be highlights of the Cape’s biggest raceday of the year on Saturday.

An eleven race card was published late last week for the treble Gr1 World Pool event.

Races 1 to 10 are designated World Pool races and offer Win, Place, Swinger, Quinella, and Exacta tote betting, which opens on Friday morning.

For those players that wish to get in early,  tote betting opened on all other bet types, including the exotics, and Race 11, on Tuesday 23 January.

  • The first race is off at 11h55.
