World Sports Betting Kimberley Festival

An entity synonymous to horseracing in South Africa is none other than World Sports Betting. And 2019 sees their support for the industry grow even bigger.

They have sponsored racing events throughout South Africa, from the Western Cape, to the Vaal and Turffontein, back to the shores of PE and KZN and now the World Sports Betting Kimberly Festival taking place on Saturday, 3rd August.


But that’s not all!

We remember witnessing the legendary Frankie Dettori riding his first winner on South African soil, aboard the Joe Soma trained Turn Back Time. For many, throughout the world, it is a regular occurrence to witness one of the greatest jockeys of all time, but for us, in sunny SA it is a rare opportunity.
World Sports Betting, Air Mauritius and Sun International – opposite to that of Frankie’s signature dismount- jumped on board again to bring the loyal patrons of the game a world class series in the Jockeys International. This exciting event has been taken to an entire new level with Equinity joining the ranks.


“Equinity is an extravagantly themed, immersive experience, incorporated

into night-time horseracing. It includes a mind-blowing show that combines

live musicians, dancers and DJs on purpose built stages and sets. This edgy,

off-the-wall show takes place after the racing, while themed characters

entertain guests from start to finish.


Live horseracing is enhanced using drones, microphones on the track and

large LED screens. An incredibly crazy after-party seamlessly follows the

main performance and allows people to dance the night away listening to a

line-up of different DJ’s.”


Packages start from R295 with the VVIP experience at R3, 995.
