The Gold Cup has a brand new sponsor -Marshalls World of Sport.
The KZN based bookmaker has signed a 4 year naming rights sponsorship deal for the Gold Cup and the Festival of Racing. Representing Marshalls World of Sport, Taffy Mukeredzi, said that this was a way for MWOS to contribute to the horseracing industry especially during these difficult times.
The 4 year sponsorship will also cover the 60th year celebration for Marshalls World of Sport after John Marshall opened his first betting operation in 1963. This year the Marshalls World of Sport Festival of Racing will take place on 31 July and fittingly will bring the 2020/2021 South African Racing Season to a close, featuring the MWOS Gold Cup and 4 Grade 1 races, all of which will have a significant effect on the outcome of the Equus Awards for this season.
