Gauteng Champ’s Season Comes To An End

Disappointing news for racing fans

In what will be a major disappointment for racing fans, SA Triple Tiara queen Rain In Holland will not run in either of the Gr1 Woolavington 2000 or the Gr1 Hollywoodbets Durban July.

Sean Tarry Racing issued a statement on Thursday wherein it was stated that the daughter of Duke Of Marmalade is scheduled to undergo corrective treatment after being diagnosed with an entrapped epiglottis.

The statement said that it was felt best to take a conservative approach and give the star 3yo the treatment she deserves.

Sean Tarry thanked owner Gaynor Rupert and her Drakenstein Stud team for supporting the decision.

Rain In Holland is a hot favourite to win more than one trophy at Saturday evening’s Highveld Season Racing Awards.

    This Triple Tiara and Triple Crown Races means Nothing. Every Year the Triple Tiara Winner does not Compete in the July, the Race of all the Races Combined. War of Athena and Now RIH. What Nonsense. You must win the July or at least Run in the July. Luckily I did not Put Antepost Money on the Horse will never again,

  2. RIAAN Koekemoer says:

    Awards does not mean anything without Running in July, Fact. That’s why Justin Snaith doesn’t bring his Horses to Gauteng, because it is meaningless, Fact.

  3. Verlynn Johnson says:

    That’s why its the high veld rewards not the KZN rewards…

  4. Geoff Logan says:

    Well said Verlynn!
    A fantastic achievement by Rain in Holland. She does not need the July for any more recognition.

  5. RIAAN Koekemoer says:

    No, the July is Everything, the Triple Tiara means Nothing. Fact. Please get it.

  6. Theo Dopilous says:

    Obviously not a breeder, come on Riaan stay in your lane. Kommetdieding to go close again.
