334 Delpech Challenge – Richard Needs 3 Winners On Saturday!

334 Delpech Jockey Challenge Million

He’s on the cusp of history! After riding his 50th career Grade 1 winner on Sean Tarry’s Lucky Lad in the Golden Horse Sprint at Hollywoodbets Scottsville last Saturday, Richard Fourie could become the new SA season winner record-holder in swashbuckling style on Saturday 8 June 2024 – a potential landmark day for SA racing.

Following his 2 winners – Hanging Rock and Luna Halo – at Fairview on Friday, the Winning Form-sponsored Richard Fourie is in search of 3 winners at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday to overtake the 25 year long Anthony Delpech season record of 334 winners.

And with a full book of rides, including a number of favourites, the 38 year old national champion elect only needs to maintain his sizzling form to make it a memorable magic moment for himself and his legion of supporters, his staunch sponsors Winning Form, and Hollywoodbets, who will hand him a cheque of R1 million in terms of the incentive offered at the start of this season.

And wouldn’t it be pure magic for him and the sponsors of South African racing’s largest jockey incentive cheque of all time, to make it Grade 1 winner number 51 on the classy Lucky Lad, who will jump from the 11 gate in the R2 million Hollywoodbets Gr1 Gold Challenge?

Richard’s first Grade 1 winner came 17 years ago as an apprentice when he got the Glen Kotzen-trained Badger’s Gift home in the TBA Gr1 Paddock Stakes on New Year’s day of 2007.

In the final race on the big day, Richard rides Izibulo in the Hollywood Syndicate silks. The fairytales are just waiting to be written!

A reminder that the first race is off at 11h45, and your Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge entry must be in at least five minutes prior to the carded off time of the opener.

On the big day your Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge selections could win you an estimated R2 Million Jackpot prize for selecting all the winners on the day.

There’s also a massive R100 000 for placing in the Top 50 on the leaderboard. Please note that amounts are subject to Bet Slip bonus rules, and it could pay to wager a minimum R50 to put yourself in line for the big money.
