De Kock Star Won’t Run In Hollywoodbets Durban July

Save the date - 6 July

After first declaration stage on Monday 13 May, 45 hopefuls remain in the mix for the 2024 R5 million Hollywoodbets Durban July.

Most high profile of the eleven scratchings has to be Mike de Kock’s undefeated 3yo Gimme A Nother, who will not be running on 6 July.

After her seventh straight victory when winning the Gr1 Empress Club Stakes in early April, there were signs that her temperament was becoming an issue. The Sporting Post will endeavour to follow up on news of her future plans.

Other scratchings are Montien, Mondial, Let’s Go Now, Atticus Finch, Second Base, Navajo Nation, River Romeo, Get Impressed, Celtic Beauty, Ancient World and Danse Milord.
