GTH is a gamechanger, the definitive team horse racing product, that merges live and digital elements into an exciting entertainment product that is broadcast across multiple platforms, attracting, and engaging a younger, more diverse, and globally connected fan base.
GTH reimagines the sport of horse racing for future generations of fans by creating a fast-paced, easy to understand, and hugely entertaining experience – fun for the entire family.
This is a world first where night riders compete in teams which go head-to-head over four weeks to determine the series champion.
The race meetings are fast paced with no more than fifteen minutes between races. The short breaks between races are packed full of thrilling entertainment to keep fans fully engaged.
Three teams will compete in the inaugural GTH series. Each event in the series is held under lights over 4 nights. Each team is composed of 1 team manager, 1 team captain, 8 night-riders and 64 horses.
Each week sees two teams go head-to-head in a thrilling competition. Teams are awarded points based on the placements of their night riders, with the team with highest point tally winning the round. Over three weeks teams will battle it out for a place in the final which takes place in the fourth and final week.
The first leg of the GTH series took place at Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse in Durban, KZN, South Africa and kicked off on Friday August 5th, 2022.
