It has been publicly disclosed that Gold Circle has accepted an offer to be acquired by Hollywoodbets and Greg Bortz. Numerous member and regulatory approvals are needed before this transaction can proceed. If these approvals are received, and the transaction is completed, it can be expected that the CTC benefits will be extended to Gold Circle venues and vice versa.

Members will receive monthly email communication.

For Grade 1 races, CENTURION members and one guest will have access to the Parade Ring. CLUB members and one guest will only be able to access the Parade Ring if they have a declared runner in the race. Additional accreditation will be issued on the day to enable access.

As per the website we have 3 memberships available, all explained in detail on the website. We are planning on launching social memberships in the near future.

No. The ROA has no standing within Cape Racing. The ROA badges are not accepted or recognised at our racecourses in the Cape. Should you additionally wish to be a member of the ROA, that is your prerogative. But this will provide you with no benefits or standing within the CTC or on our racecourses.

Each CTC CENTURION and CLUB member can host one guest in the Parade Ring. The CTC member MUST accompany each guest at all times. This is part of an initiative to tighten security and access to the Parade Ring. Access to the Parade Ring has been relaxed in recent years; however, it is hallowed ground and should be treated as such.
