Horse Racing Betting - Best odds and all the latest action covers all South African horse racing whether it is from Greyville, Turffontein, Kenilworth, Vaal, Fairview, Durbanville, Scottsville, Clairwood, Flamingo Park or Arlington.

Whether you’re a fan of flat racing or just love to see the horse go over the hurdles. Taking you down to the track and putting you into the action, our betting offers odds not only on all local races, but from the UK and Ireland, all the way through the season too. With a range of bet types for each race and meeting, plus ante post markets if you want to bet well in advance, there are plenty of betting options available for you.

If you want to keep up to date with the news and reviews of Africa's highlight of the annual horse-racing calendar then we are just the place for you because Sportingbet South Africa has a full coverage of the Vodacom Durban July betting odds and tips. The VDJ is held annually on the first Saturday of July since 1897 at Greyville Racecourse. It is South Africa's premier horse racing event and currently offers a handsome purse. The 32 entries at the final stage of declarations has been whittled down to the final field of 18 and two reserve runners. Sensational racing is on the cards with a supporting cast of Grade 1 races like nothing that has ever been seen in this country.

Billed as South Africa’s new richest horse racing event, the Sun Met (formely the J&B Met) offers equestrian and betting enthusiasts the opportunity to see the country’s finest thoroughbreds test their mettle in nail-biting races, the best of the lot competing for a generous stake in the main event.

The Cheltenham Festival is a meeting in the National Hunt racing calendar in the United Kingdom and Sportingbet SA has all the festival betting odds. It is an event where many of the best British- and Irish-trained horses race to an extent which is relatively rare during the rest of the season. The meeting usually coincides with Saint Patrick's Day, and is particularly popular with Irish visitors. Cheltenham is often noted for its atmosphere, most notably the "Cheltenham roar", which refers to the enormous amount of noise that the crowd generates as the starter raises the tape for the first race of the festival.

Is there any race in the world that can match the Grand National at Aintree. 4 miles 3½ furlongs long and with over 30 fences to jump for the 40 horses involved, the Grand National captures the imagination like no other horse race and is one of the finest spectacles in sport. That’s not all because it is also one of the finest horse racing betting events around! Run each year in April, the Grand National is watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world and has provided some of the most memorable moments in horse racing - from Red Rum’s first victory to some of the celebrated outsiders who upset the horse racing odds.
