Betway, one of the biggest and most popular sports and casino games betting sites in South Africa, have added horse racing to their impressive sports offering. Betway punters can now enjoy betting on horse races in South Africa, and from around the world, starting from as little as R1, and with the option of betting on wins, each way and a horse to finish second bets on the Betway platform. It’s a great move that will be welcomed by the horse racing community, and in this guide we’re going to take a closer look at what to expect from the Betway horse racing offering.
Where to find horse racing on Betway
To access the latest meets and races visit www.betway.co.za/horseracing from your mobile phone, desktop or through the Betway app. Here you’ll find the next off races, races taking place today, races for tomorrow and ante post betting for major horse racing events.
Betway Horse Racing Odds
The odds available on Betway are competitive when compared to other South African betting sites like Hollywoodbets, Bet.co.za and others. You will find some variation in the odds offered in the build up to a race, but in general the odds on offer are good, and in some cases the Ante-post odds are better than other betting sites. It’s also worth noting that Betway are covering major horse racing meets with odds lined up well in advance.
It’s worth noting that for the time being you cannot combine sports bets with horse racing bets on Betway, however you can combine multiple horse from different races in a single bet. There is also a 6% winnings tax levied on winning bets, as per government requirements.

Our thoughts on the Betway South Africa Horse Racing Offering
With the addition of horse racing, Betway have given punters yet another reason to sign up and bet with one of the best betting sites in South Africa. Most other bookmakers have removed horse racing or don’t offer it at all, so it’s refreshing to see a big brand like Betway adding it to their site (something which did take a few years!).
Horse racing on Betway is off to a good start, with decent odds and few betting options, perfect for casual and serious punters. However we’d like to see some more exotic betting options added, like trifectas, place wins and a few others. These do look like they might be added in the future though, as the options are currently there but are greyed out. Other than that it’s great to see horse racing finally added to a bookmaker that we highly recommend.
