Horserace sports betting is definitely not a complicated activity. In essence you choose which horse to bet on and then wait and watch the outcome of the race. In South Africa horse race betting has been around for years and essentially started with the Durban July in 1897 although there were most definitely informal bets on horseracing events made for many years before that.
If you’re lucky enough to attend an actual horseracing event such as the Vodacom Durban July, the J&B Met, the Steinhoff International Summer Cup or the Champions Challenge, and bet on your favourite horse whilst you’re there, then you are sure to have a grand experience.
