Dundalk Stadium has announced a sponsorship deal with South Africa-based bookmaker Hollywoodbets for quarter four of 2020 at the Co Louth venue, Ireland’s only all-weather racetrack.
Established in 1986, South African-based Hollywoodbets began as a company called Winning Form, publishing and distributing horse racing form guides.
They opened their first branch in South Africa in 2000 before establishing an online business in 2006.
In South Africa they have naming rights sponsorship of both the Greyville and Scottsville racetracks, with Hollywoodbets Greyville being the home to South Africa’s most prestigious race, the Group 1 Vodacom Durban July Handicap.
