World Sports Betting have announced they will award a R100,000 bonus to any horse who can win the last two legs of the Super Supreme Series, the R250,000 G3 August Stakes over 1200m to be run on the Vaal sand this Saturday August 29 and the Gr 2 R1 million Supreme Cup sponsored by SAP and to be run over 1450m on the Vaal sand on September 26.
Before the Super Supreme Series began World Sports Betting put up a R500,000 bonus to any horse who could win all three legs. However, when they discovered the winner of the first leg, the Louis Goosen-trained Varbration, who won the R135,000 World Sports Betting Sprint over 1000m at Flamingo Park on August 8, had been scratched from the August Stakes, they generously put up the R100,000 bonus for the last two legs in order to provide an incentive and keep the public’s interest in the two events at a maximum.
There are some eyecatching entries in the August Stakes, who have the potential to do the double and thereby claim the bonus. They include Bouclette Top, a classy sort who has been livened up by blinkers, Isphan, who has mixed it with some of the best sprinters around and has won over 1450m, Captain Haddock, who was impressive over the August Stakes course and distance last time and has won twice over a mile, Olympic Owen, who has won a Gr 3 over 1100m and has gone close over 1400m, Mootahadee, who has won on all-weather surfaces from 1200m up to 1400m, Jade Vine, who has won over the course and distance of both the August Stakes and the Supreme Cup, Roman Carnival, who is effective from 1200m up to a mile and has taken to the sand like a duck to water, and Olympic Bolt, who would likely prefer further than both races but it will be interesting to see how he goes in his first attempt at 1200m in the August Stakes. Phumelela Gaming would like to remind everyone that the final field for the August Stakes will be published by midday today.
