What is a Durban July Pool draw?
  • A pool draw is where all the horses running in the Durban July are put into a hat. 
  • People enter the competition to draw a horse out of the hat by paying a set fee to take part
  • Whoever’s horse wins the race, wins the pool
  • Example, if 18 people enter at R10 each, then the winner gets R180

What happens if I don’t have 18 people?
  • Allow people to buy more than one entry.
  • Therefore if the entry fee is R10, and someone pays R30, they can then draw 3 horses.
  • If not all the horses are taken in the draw, then the highest finishing horse wins the pool.

How does one run a Durban July Pool Draw at work?
  • Get one person to facilitate the draw.
  • This person will prepare the draw, collect the money, and record which person draws which horse
  • They will print 2 copies of the Vodacom Durban July cut out by clicking here: http://bit.ly/2IRDovX
  • Use 1 copy to cut out each of the horses and put horses 1 to 18 in a hat (remove horses 19 and 20 as they are reserve runners)*
  • Use the other copy to record who draws which horse

How does one enter a draw?
  • People pay an equal amount to enter the pool draw (for example R10)
  • Once you have paid you can pull a horse out of the hat
  • Don't tell anyone which horse you have until everyone has drawn a horse
  • Once the draw is done, everyone reveals which horse they have, and the facilitator records this on the other copy you printed
  • Whoever's horse wins the race, wins the pool! If 18 people enter at R10 each, then the winner gets R180! 

What happens if my horse is scratched?
  • If someone’s horse is scratched, they can then be given one of the reserve runners
  • If there are no reserve runners, then they get their money back

When is the Durban July?
  • Watch the Vodacom Durban July on Saturday the 7th July at 16:20. It's Race number 7!
