Driers Celebrate A Beautiful Memory

A fabulous family affair!

Dennis Drier was the master planner behind the star-studded career of former darling of the South African turf Beach Beauty, and it was sentimentally appropriate that the Summerveld senior statesman saddled the winner of Sunday’s Hollywoodbets Greyville feature named in honour of his dashing daughter of Dynasty.

The Boland Stud-bred Master Of My Fate filly Broadway Girl followed up on her recent maiden victory when she cruised in to win the R90 000 non black-type Beach Beauty Mile, and she now heads to the Cape for their season and far tougher assignments.

The diminutive Beach Beauty won five Gr1’s for Dennis Drier, and while the Sunday feature attracted no stakes performers with a highest MR of 85 for debut winner Palm Breeze, Broadway Girl could do little more than win and she looks likely to show further improvement when going over more ground.

Having her fifth start, Broadway Girl (9-4 favourite), who races in a family partnership of Dennis’ son Wayne, the veteran’s daughter Claire and Mom Gill, accelerated with some ease 350m from home and went on to beat Mystic Angel (16-1) by 3,50 lengths in a time of 97,90 secs.

Devils And Dust (10-1) was beaten a further 1,10 lengths back in third.

Now a winner of 2 races with 3 places from 5 starts, Broadway Girl took her stakes earnings to R131 250.

The next KZN meeting is at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the poly on Monday – start time is 12h40 and it’s another chance to win big in the free-to-enter Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge.
