Phumelela Gaming is happy to announce that another sponsorship has been concluded!
A R500,000 bonus will be paid by World Sports Betting to any horse that can win all three legs of the Super Supreme Series, which starts at Flamingo Park on Saturday 1 August and ends at the Vaal Racecourse on Saturday 29 September.
The series will be targeted by the country’s best sand sprinter-to-1450m horses.
The bonus will be thoroughly deserved by any horse that can land the treble, because the three races are effectively handicaps meaning a winner of one of the legs will likely have a more difficult task in the next leg.
The first leg will be the R135,000 Non-Black Type World Sports Betting Flamingo Sprint, a handicap over 1000m to be run on Saturday 1 August at Flamingo Park in Kimberley. The second leg is the R250,000 Grade 3 August Stakes, a handicap over 1200m at the Vaal on 29 August. The final leg is the R1-million Supreme Cup presented by SAP and will be run over 1450m at the Vaal on Saturday 26 September.
The weights in the Supreme Cup presented by SAP will be decided by merit-rated bands in units of four. The weight for the band of 115 and above will be 62kg and the weight for each descending band will go down by 2kg. Fillies and mares will receive a 2kg allowance, which will hand them an advantage on paper.
World Sports Betting will also be donating R100,000 to charity.
