Honouring Eddie – The Dogs Are Barking

Don't miss! Hollywoodbets Scottsville first at 12h20

South Africa’s leading horseracing video/podcast, A Shaw Thing is powered by Hollywoodbets and is broadcast thrice weekly.

The dogs are barking about the Vercingetorix colt Eddie The Mover in the first race at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday.

The first is off at 12h20.


Eddie The Mover is named in honour of one of the great characters of the game in Cape Owner Eddie Powell, who passed away after a short illness on 16 July 2021.

Eddie The Mover is set to shed his maiden after a good first effort and beyond the sentiment and emotion, the dogs have been barking about the Yogas Govender charge, who will be ridden by Ashton Arries.

And the stars are somehow aligned – Eddie would have celebrated his birthday on Thursday 24 February.

Shaheen Shaw and Eddie’s great friend Rouvaun Smit will be on course at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday to shout the good-looking galloper home.

The free-to-enter Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge offers a progressive jackpot of R1 450 000 with the must-be-won prize of R10 000 up for grabs for the top 20 on the day’s leaderboard.
