HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE WAS THE PLACE TO BE ON BOXING DAY

Hollywoodbets Greyville was the place to be on Boxing Day as a jam-packed crowd was in attendance to witness yet another leg of the KZN Hollywoodbets Sizzling Summer Challenge.

It was business as usual for the top four jockeys on the leaderboard with all of them accumulating 40 points or more. Keagan de Melo, Anton Marcus and Warren Kennedy all rode a winner, whilst S’manga Khumalo managed to ride a few places.

With de Melo winning on the proverbial penalty kick of the afternoon in the form of THEMBA and finishing in the money three times, he managed to extend his lead to 19.5 points from Anton Marcus back in second. Marcus started the day with a good win on ROUND THE HORN, followed up with two good second place finishes which ensured he remains in a striking position on the leaderboard.

Hot on the trail of the leaders was Warren Kennedy, as he managed to accumulate the most points on the day with 72. Kennedy’s one winner for the raiding Paul Peter stable on CRIME SCENE and a few places, including an impressive second on Vistula in the Flamboyant Stakes, saw him move ahead of S’manga Khumalo into third position on the jockeys' log.

On the trainers log, Paul Lafferty extended his seven point lead from Sunday to a massive 45 point lead over Hollywoodbets sponsored Garth Puller back in second. Lafferty had one winner and managed to accumulate 44 points from his five runners with his one winner coming in the form of VICTORIOUS MAN.

Aside from the trainer’s log, Lafferty also seems to be dominating the horses log with three horses in the top six positions. Bint El Malak leads the charge for Lafferty with her stable companion Explosive Beauty one point behind her in second and back tied for fifth is Noble Flight.


The next raceday for the Hollywoodbets KZN Sizzling Summer Challenge will be this Sunday 29th December at Hollywoodbets Greyville, which also happens to be the last KZN meeting of the year. 

With the Pick 6 guarantee of R1.5million, there should be no better place to end off your 2019 racing calendar with than at Hollywoodbets Greyville.
