Honourable Judge Vally of the Gauteng Local Division, Johannesburg, heard argument from the applicants (Keith Ho t/a Betxchange and Play Bet Proprietary Limited), the legal representatives appearing on behalf of the first respondent (the Minister of Police) and the ninth, tenth and eleventh respondents (DM Kisch, Gerald Bourne and Farrel Frank), and Tellytrack, respectively, on the issue of whether the matter should be heard on an urgent basis.

Racing Victoria, which governs thoroughbred horseracing in the Australian state of Victoria, is to increase fees charged for “race fields” from 1 July in a move that will have a major financial impact on online bookmakers in particular.

The fee for race fields is for use of racecard data only and fixed-odds and betting exchange operators like Betfair, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Sportingbet and William Hill, as well as Tabcorp which operates tote and fixed-odds betting, will all have to pay significantly more going forward. An analyst estimated the increase in fees would cost Paddy Power more than R50 million annually and William Hill about R40 million.


Phumelela has agreed to provide technical services in respect of the staging of horse racing and betting in Zimbabwe under the control and direction of the MTC. In addition, Phumelela will provide financial support in the form of a bridging loan to the MTC.

In February 2014 application was made by 39 bookmakers and the Gauteng Off-Course Bookmakers' Association for an interdict against Phumelela, Gold Circle, Kenilworth Racing, Tellytrack and others to ensure that the applicants continue receiving "the televised broadcasting of live, real-time horseracing events" on the same terms as prevailed up until 31 January 2014, pending the outcome of the Gauteng Off-Course Bookmakers Association's complaints to the Gauteng, Eastern Cape and National Gambling Boards.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club has given the green light for Hong Kong races to be screened in South Africa again.

Tellytrack CEO John Stuart announced last month that screening of Hong Kong races was being discontinued “pending further developments”, but approval has now been received for TV coverage of races at Hong Kong’s Happy Valley and Sha Tin racecourses to resume.



MultiChoice, Phumelela, Gold Circle and Kenilworth Racing have announced a new agreement to distribute the Tellytrack channel. Individual DStv customers and hotels will receive Tellytrack on DStv channel 239 from 27 March.

LONDON - UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne’s announcement in his Budget Speech that horseracing deserved Government backing to gain what he termed a “Racing Right,” which is a commercial mechanism that enables the sport to claim money from its customers, was hailed as a “breakthrough” by the sport’s leaders.

Osborne also announced that bookmakers based offshore would now be subject to legislation that demanded Levy payments from them for the right to bet on British racing.

For many years, they have escaped paying the Levy because of their geographical position.
