Domeyer Shines For Eight Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge Winners

Cracking ride by Cape heavyweight

While Aldo Domeyer only had four rides at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Tuesday, his solitary winner on the sunny afternoon made him a hero on the day for eight happy winners of the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge.

The popular free-to-play competition produced eight more winners, just days after player Dream 333 scooped the all-or-nothing jackpot of R840 000 at Fairview on Friday.

That means there are 85 all-or-nothing jackpot winners in 2024 to date!

The local racing jackpot prize is calculated on the number of starters on the  raceday, which are multiplied by R10 000 to give the basic jackpot prize. A minimum wager of R50 on the programmatically generated bet slip means that the player can double the end payout.

There were 63 starters at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Tuesday which saw a R630 000 jackpot prize (R1 260 000 if they wagered a R50 minimum on the betslip!) shared by eight thrilled winners, who took home approximately R78 750 each.

Stallionbynature, neetz, Chloe, KP08, Thobza92, Asher27, Punterchllence and Avabree are the lucky winners who can ultimately thank Aldo Domeyer for a sensational ride to get the Candice Bass Robinson filly Strata up in the final stride to defeat the free-striding Palo Queen, on whom Richard Fourie had done everything, but win the final race.

Strata put paid to the hopes of the 17 players who had found the 7 winners to that point, and were riding the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge dream wave on Palo Queen.

Domeyer only had four rides on the afternoon, and was clearly pleased with his feat of fine judgement which saw him stop the high-riding national log-leader Richard Fourie on the luckless Paul Reeves-trained filly, who was consigned to a bridesmaid cheque yet again.

The Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge is South Africa’s most popular racing competition of all time and attracted a total of 11053 players today.

Just 24 hours earlier, 5 players went into the final race at Hollywoodbets Scottsville, only to be pipped by a determined Smanga Khumalo on Harley’s Fate.

It’s been a big year so far for winners in this exciting challenge.

We mentioned Dream 333’s R840 000 win on Friday, while in February, two lucky players, Sketts and EnQ, became the first jackpot winners of 2024 when they shared the R720 000 jackpot prize by selecting all eight winners on the Turffontein 8 February card.

On Saturday 10 February, a record 74 winners shared a payout of R650 000 in the free-to-play competition. Each winner received over R8 700 each.

Hollywoodbets offer the all-or-nothing jackpot prize to the player, or players, who correctly pick all the winners on any race day – and that’s all local race-meetings, as well as Hong Kong and Singapore fixtures.

For Hong Kong and Singapore racemeetings, the jackpot prize is R500 000.

The Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge is really easy to understand and to play.

All you need is a Hollywoodbets account and the choice is yours to either select one horse in each of the races at the designated race meeting or opt to make use of the ‘quick-pick’ option and take a chance!

Our congratulations are extended to all the winners today.

Wednesday could be your chance, and presents another two chances to win big, with local racing at Hollywoodbets Greyville (off time 12h35) and Hong Kong racing at Sha Tin (off time 13h15).

Have a look at Aldo Domeyer’s ride on Strata – it was close!
