GOOD news for racegoers is that all nine Dubai World Cup races being run on Saturday will be broadcast live on Tellytrack on channel 239 on DStv.
And if last year’s numbers are anything to go by, punters can again this year expect some huge pools.
The main race last year saw some mouth-watering pools, with the Quartet reaching more than R2-million, the Trifecta more than R3-million, and the Exacta more than R4-million. The Win pool reached a whopping R5.5-million.
On Saturday the Quartet pool on the main race is estimated to reach R2.5-million.
Punters should note that a full wagering menu will be offered by TAB and Betting World.
The Bipot starts in Race 2, the PA starts in Race 3, the Pick 6 starts in Race 4, and the Jackpot starts in Race 6. Interestingly, last year’s Jackpot pool touched the R2-million mark.
