Betway Horse Racing | Bet Now in South Africa on Local and International Races
A watershed moment has arrived for online betting in South Africa as Betway has added horse racing to its sports offering. For the first time, punters in South Africa with a Betway account can place bets on horse races from as little as R1.
The introduction of Betway Horse Racing means betting is now available on local meetings like Vaal and Turfontein as well as UK-based racetracks such as Aintree and Newmarket. Place bets like singles and multis on different markets which include 'to win', each-way, tricasts and forecasts—the sky's the limit when it comes to Betway Horse Racing!
So if you're a racing enthusiast and don't yet have a Betway account, there's no better time than now to sign up and start betting on horses with South Africa's fastest-growing online bookmaker.
Keep reading to learn why we're so excited about the introduction of horse racing to Betway South Africa, plus get easy instructions for how to place your first horse racing bet on the site.

Exotic betting options like trifectas, place wins and others are not available at Betway yet but we have it on good authority they will be soon.
For the time being, Betway does not allow you to combine bets on other sports bets with horse racing, but you can easily combine legs from multiple horse races into a single bet.
