With a thriving horse breeding industry that’s been around since the 1600s, South Africa is one of the biggest and best on the horse racing scene. The country now plays host to 440 official meetings a year.

Horse racing in South Africa is often a glamorous event – the big spenders love to come out to play. Punters are often immaculately dressed, especially at the big events.

The average field size is 12 horses, while the two biggest race days are the Sun Met, run on the last Saturday of January, and the Vodacom Durban July, held on the first Saturday of July. Make sure to check our South African betting tips for these events – they really are huge.

The country’s top jockeys include the likes of S’manga Khumalo, who in July 2013 became the first black jockey to win the Durban July. Billy Jacobson, known as the ‘Riding Machine’, is another prominent contemporary name.

Michael Roberts – a legendary jockey in his day in both Britain and South Africa – is among the top trainers in the country. When it comes to the biggest and most famous, Mike de Kock is your man, and will regularly feature in our South African racing tips.
