Horse Racing Courses

Since the year 1797, horse racing has become a popular sport in South Africa. The first recorded race club meeting took place in 1802. The National Horse Racing Authority is the nationally recognised body for horse racing. This body once operated under the name of The Jockey Club of South Africa.
 
The sport is effectively controlled by Phumelela Gaming and Leisure Limited and the Gold Circle. These companies would also tend to the maintenance and upgrades of the various horse racing courses in the country. Phumelela controls the racing and the course in the Free State, Northern Cape, Eastern Cape and Gauteng, while Gold Circle looks after the sport in the Western Cape and Kwazulu-Natal.
 
Some of the biggest races take place on three courses each year. Turfontein racecourse in Johannesburg usually hosts The Summer Cup, while The J & B Met makes it appearance in Cape Town. However the most popular horse racing course in the country is the 2,800 metre pear-shaped Greyville Racecourse in KZN Durban which hosts the annual Vodacom July handicap. Along with the race courses, betting is a primary pastime in this sport. Saftote is the company which controls the betting industry.
 
Other racecourses include Arlington Race Course in the Eastern Cape, the Fairview Race Course in Port Elizabeth, the Vaal Race Course in the Free State, as well as many others around South Africa
