WSB go BIG on JULY in JOZI was created by Dave Scott

SUBJECT: Heat turned on at WSB-sponsored Jozi In July

DATE: Monday 20 July 2020

RELEASED BY: Phumelela Gaming

According to the weather report, a mild winter’s day has been forecast for Joburg, but the heat will be up at Turffontein to celebrate the July In Jozi, brought to you by World Sports Betting.

The sponsors and the on-course marketing team have joined forces to make this a special day with great food, wonderful betting opportunities and, of course, superb racing.

“At World Sports Betting (WSB) we got out of the gates fast this year. Even with the postponement of the race meeting, we launched our annual ‘Deposit Match’ promo on 1 July and let it run the entire month,” said Ryno du Plessis, Marketing Manager for World Sports Betting.

That offer is a 100% deposit match up to R20,000 on ALL DEPOSITS for the month of July.

“This has really been popular with the clients,” added De Plessis. “We also have a special promotion on Do it Again where we are offering to double up winnings in Free Bets if he wins.

“I think this really adds to the excitement of his attempt to become the first horse to win the Vodacom Durban July three times.

“Lastly, we have been offering a daily promotion with Deez Dayanand where punters have been invited to follow his daily treble and get 25% of their stakes back if the bet loses.

“We are doubling this refund to 50% for July day for both Turffontein and Greyville racing!”

Deez Dayanand also hosted trainer Joe Soma and champion jockey Lyle Hewitson in a discussion about the Durban July card, which was aired on You Tube. “All things considered it went very well. The guys had a blast and the punters got some real value out of it.

“Besides the massive price boosts throughout the actual broadcast, I think the insights from the two horsemen will aid a few punters in their decisions for the big race.”

Du Plessis said there had been early support for Vardy, Do It Again and Rainbow Bridge. “There has also been support for both Shango and Got The Greenlight since the Jockey change was announced (Hewitson moved to Shango and Muzi Yeni on Got The Greenlight).

“The July is always an open race no matter what the betting says. It’s a field of champions so the best way to play it is to simply back which ever champion YOU like best. They are all capable.”

And what does he fancy to win South Africa’s premier horserace? “Like most my heart is with Do it Again, but I am putting my money on Miyabi Gold to upset.”

There will be huge carryovers on the Greyville meeting, with both the Pick 6 and Durban July Quartet pools expected to reach R15 million!

World Sports Betting will, of course, be sponsoring all races at Turffontein and we look forward to seeing the WSB orange in display on the big day.

“Hats off to the Gold Circle and Phumelela teams for putting the race days together under these unique circumstances,” concluded Du Plessis.

Owners who wish to book a table for July Day in Jozi, brought to you by World Sports Betting, should call Patience on 011 681 1508 to book in the Furious Room and Angie on 011 683 3220 for RA members.

SUBJECT: It’s now time for WSB-sponsored Jozi In July

South Africa’s premier horserace is just around the corner and if owners can’t be in Durban, the next best place for owners to be is at Turffontein to enjoy the July In Jozi, brought to you by World Sports Betting.

After a delay of three weeks due to the coronavirus, the best horses in the land will go to post at 15.10 for this year’s Vodacom Durban July to the delight of racing fans around the country.

The Durban July forms part of the Turffontein card with eight other races, sponsored by World Sports Betting, run at the course.

“The July In Jozi is an important part of the World Sports Betting Racing Calendar, and even though we regrettably won’t be there in person this year with the immense level of racing quality from Turffontein, our team will certainly be there in spirit and we look forward to doing it bigger and better than ever before in 2021!” announced Warren Tannous, Group CEO.

There will be a lot to take in at Turffontein and it could pay to follow Mike de Kock’s runners in the first three races. He has a couple of well-bred first-timers in Races 1 and 2 and the duo ridden by Randall Simons look the pair to follow. In Race 3 De Kock saddles impressive debut winner Al Madhar, who is confidently expected to notch up his second successive win. This one is ridden by Sherman Brown.

There are massive carryovers on the Greyville card including a Pick 6 and Quartet carryover on the Vodacom Durban July, both expected to reach R15 million.

The most talked about Pick 6 banker on the Greyville card is Sean Tarry-trained Caralluma in Race 5, who has won impressively over the course and distance, and is well drawn.

Then, of course, there is the Vodacom Durban July, and all eyes will be on Do It Again to see if he can make history by becoming the first horse to win the Durban July three times.

Trainer Justin Snaith believes he can!

But Rainbow Bridge is in good form, has a great draw and has champion jockey in-waiting, Warren Kennedy, in the irons. On paper he looks the horse to beat.

There are some three-year-olds who are out at the weights but Got The Greenlight is a three-time Grade 1 winner and cannot be ignored. Joe Soma’s runner has Muzi Yeni aboard.

For the Quartet, double float Rainbow Bridge and Got The Greenlight with the likes of Belgarion, Do It Again, Soqrat, Vardy, Padre Pio and a great outsider, It’s My Turn.
