World Pool logos to be carried by Tote-sponsored horses

01 June 2023

On World Pool days in the UK, Tote-sponsored owners will now be asked to carry the World Pool logo on the chest of their silks, instead of the Tote logo on these feature flat meetings. The Tote logo will remain in place on the collar.

The remaining UK World Pool events in 2023 are:

  • QIPCO King George Diamond Day – Ascot, Saturday 29 July
  • Qatar Goodwood Festival - Goodwood, Tuesday 1 to Thursday 3 August
  • Sky Bet Ebor Festival – York, Wednesday 23 to Friday 25 August
  • QIPCO British Champions Day – Ascot, Saturday 21 October

World Pool is now in its fifth year, having started at Royal Ascot in 2019 and is a collaboration of 28 pool betting operators from around the globe. During a World Pool event certain pools operated by the UK Tote, and other Totes from around the globe, are notionally commingled with pools operated by the Hong Kong Jockey Club to create a “World Pool”.  This results in enormous liquidity, and a multi-million pound betting experience and better value for the customer.

World Pool is proving increasingly popular with horseracing fans and is generating new funds and significant financial returns for British and Irish racing via media rights for participating racecourses which is in turn being put into prizemoney increases.

After such a strong start to the year, we wish all ROA/Tote-sponsored horses continuing luck for the rest of 2023!
