IKIGAI WINS 2020 GAUTENG GUINEAS

Phumelela is delighted to announce that total prize money for the 37 feature races which comprise the 2021 Highveld Summer-Autumn Feature Season has been increased by 43%.

The season kicks off with the first legs of the World Sports Betting SA Triple Crown and the Wilgerbosdrift SA Triple Tiara on Saturday 6 February and continues until Saturday 1 May, when Champions Day will bring down the curtain on three months of quality racing.

A total of R6.4 million was originally allocated to the 37 races, but an increased contribution from Phumelela and the World Sports Betting and Wilgerbosdrift sponsorships have enabled total prize money to be upped by R2.74 million to R9.135 million.

Full details of the feature-race increases are below and in the attached pdf.
