All that glitters will be gold when South Africa's horseracing fraternity heads to Turffontein on Saturday 26 November for the 2022 Betway Summer Cup hosted by horse racing operator 4Racing.

Gauteng's most prestigious horse racing event at the historic Turffontein racecourse promises to be a sparkling affair. It will bring together an exhilarating horse racing experience with some of the country's elite thoroughbred champions, entertainment and an awesome day out for the family.

4Racing CEO Fundi Sithebe Sithebe told The Citizen that they want to change the general perception that horse racing is only for the rich and middle-aged generation.

It shouldn't be the sport of Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses - it should be a sport for everyone.

Sithebe said they are looking for young Gen Z blood to join the horse racing fraternity and therefore the event offers an exciting lifestyle element.
