Highveld Racing Honour The Stars

Paul Peter yard dominate the show

The connections of SA Triple Tiara champion Rain In Holland received some compensation for the bad news this week that their star won’t be racing again this season, when she was crowned Highveld Horse Of The Season at the regional awards ceremony held at The Venue, Melrose Arch in Johannesburg, to honour equine and human achievements during the Highveld feature race season.

The standout in a terrific season, the Drakenstein bred and raced Rain In Holland was a multiple award winner.
