Now, World Pool will offer its customers the Lightning Stakes Day in Australia, The Saudi Cup and the Irish Derby.
The brand’s horseracing pools are powered by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, which will provide further funding alongside UK Tote Group, Racecourse Media Group and Ascot Racecourse in giving stable staff the chance to have a free VIP trip to Hong Kong and HK$1m ($127,000) in prizes.
Michael Fitzsimons, Executive Director of Wagering Products of the Hong Kong Jockey Club, said: “We were absolutely thrilled with the results from our 21 World Pool meetings in 2022 and are excited to be extending that offering to 25 days this year.
“Having Australia and Saudi Arabia on the fixture list of 2023 World Pool meetings is another important step in the globalisation of World Pool while adding some high-profile British and Irish meetings to the schedule is another exciting advancement.”
Meanwhile, Alex Frost, Chief Executive of the UK Tote Group, added: “We are looking forward to another World Pool season which now extends its reach across eight countries worldwide.
“For the UK and Ireland, it is welcome to see new additions to this year’s schedule, with two races from Newbury’s Lockinge Day, added, along with Irish Derby Day, taking World Pool events hosted in the UK and Ireland to a total of 18.
“The ambitions for a global wagering platform are already being realised with over 20 pool betting operators now part of World Pool.”
