These iconic community landmarks will now be known as Hollywoodbets Kenilworth Racecourse and Hollywoodbets Durbanville Racecourse.

Through this sponsorship, the two organisations are working together to create much improved venues and experience for race-goers, which will bring together communities and showcase the thrill of horse racing to new and old crowds. This initiative includes the upgrading of facilities, bringing a number of bookmakers back on course and fun activities for all, as well as bigger fields with the introduction of the recently launched Race Cape campaign powered by Hollywoodbets. 

Following the huge success of the Grooms Initiative project in KwaZulu-Natal, focussing on this important sector was an integral component of this partnership.  Hollywoodbets and Cape Racing are happy to introduce this programme to Western Cape racing to recognise the critical role played by grooms. They will now receive a R1 000 cash bonus for every win, paid jointly by both parties. 

Hollywoodbets will also sponsor a Work Riders’ series, with the goal of promoting and developing future stars. In addition to the new naming rights deal, Hollywoodbets will sponsor the final race of each meeting, the Hollywoodbets Bright Future Stakes.

Greg Bortz, Chairman Elect of Cape Racing, added “We are intensely focused on reinvigorating and uplifting this wonderful sport of ours, not just for the racing fans, but for those key employees and stakeholders who are the building blocks underpinning it all. In Hollywoodbets, Cape Racing has found a sponsor and partner with a shared value system and outlook.”

Devin Heffer, Brand and Communications Manager at Hollywoodbets, expressed “Hollywoodbets is absolutely thrilled to be involved with Cape Racing and we are looking to breathe new fire into racing in the Western Cape.  The naming rights sponsorship and other projects are just the beginning of our involvement and race goers in the province will see a lot more of our signature purple branding in the near future.”

These initiatives all start from Wednesday 7th September 2022.
