WORLD Sports Betting are the new sponsors of one of South Africa’s most prestigious classics, the R1-million Cape Fillies Guineas, which is to be run this year on December 5 at Kenilworth racecourse.
The World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas will form the alternate first leg of the SA Triple Tiara, as it did last year.
The big race has been won by some of all-time great fillies of the South African turf, including Breyani, Petrava, Olympic Duel, Star Effort, Hoeberg, Sun Classique and Princess Victoria.
Majmu, 2014 winner.
Last year’s Cape Fillies Guineas turned out to be one of the best form races of the season as the winner Majmu went on to win the Gr 1 Laurie Jaffee Empress Club Stakes in Johannesburg before running second to the boys under a Gr 1 penalty in the Gr 1 President’s Champions Challenge, while the runner up Inara went on to win both the Gr 1 Maine Chance Farms Paddock Stakes and the Gr 1 Klawervlei Majorca Stakes.
The World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas meeting also features the R400,000 Gr 2 Southern Cross Stakes for fillies and mares and the Listed Southeaster Sprint so is a Cape Summer Of Champions day to diarise.
World Sports Betting have burst into sponsorship of South African horseracing with an enthusiasm seldom before seen.
They came on board at the beginning of this season when not only sponsoring the first leg of the Super Supreme Series, the Non-Black Type R135,000 World Sports Betting Sprint over 1000m at Flamingo Park, but also offering a R500,000 bonus to any horse who could win all three legs of the Super Supreme Series. When the World Sports Betting Sprint winner Varbration was scratched from the second leg of the series, World Sports Betting generously offered R100,000 to any horse who could win the remaining two legs, the August Stakes and the Supreme Cup sponsored by SAP.
