Keagan de Melo on top at Christmas

Ultra Magnus - Horse Racing at Hollywoodbets Scottsville

It was another gloomy Sunday at Hollywoodbets Scottsville, but that didn’t stop Keagan de Melo’s hot run of form in the Hollywoodbets KZN Sizzling Summer Challenge, as he regained the lead with a treble on the card.

His treble on Sunday 22nd December 2019 included a double for Johan Janse van Vuuren and one winner for Mark Dixon.  With that treble and a few high placings he managed to accumulate a massive 67 points on the afternoon which gave him a 17 point lead.

Anton Marcus was another notable mover on yesterday’s card with a treble of his own and he managed to move into second ahead of S’manga Khumalo who dropped down to third.

In the trainers log, Hollywoodbets sponsored trainer Garth Puller saw him narrow Paul Lafferty’s 29 point lead down to 7 points. Puller had a fantastic weekend accumulating 119 points over the two racemeetings and finds himself in a striking position.

The horses log still sees the Paul Lafferty trained Bint El Malak ahead of the rest but with many horses carded to run before the end of the year that log is sure to change very soon
The next raceday for the KZN Sizzling Summer Challenge will be Boxing Day which will see racing head to Hollywoodbets Greyville and with the Pick 6 pool guaranteed to reach a whopping R1.7 million, it is guaranteed to be a buzz!
