Racing Stars: Clyde Grabs Public Holiday Glory

Hollywoodbets Kenilworth is up next

Weighted To Win’s Clyde Basel shrewdly didn’t put all his eggs in one basket at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Easter Monday and emerged the winner on Day 1 of Week 2 of the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge Racing Stars competition.

On what was a day of lowly ranked horseracing, the seven races on the all-weather presented a tough challenge, but the experienced racing man staved off a late challenge from media whizz Andrew Bon to bank the R500 daily award.

Showing that there is no give or take in the game, birthday boy Lyall Cooper had to be content with sixth position.

The Racing Stars competition is  hosted within the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge platform for South Africa’s racing presenters, personalities, commentators and journalists pits the faces and voices of racing against each other, competing in every South African race meeting, covering KZN, Western Cape, Gauteng, and Eastern Cape.

For the 30 days of April, there is R27 000 up for grabs, with a R500 daily Racing Stars winner takes-it-all prize for each race meeting.

Devonne Govender, who won Sunday’s daily prize and became the first winner of the R2500 in prize money for Week 1 of the Racing Stars competition, maintained his consistent line and was a solid third on Monday.

For regular players the Racing Stars are also in position on the daily leaderboard – so it’s a chance for every punter countrywide to pit their individual skills against the professionals!

The Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge roadshow now moves to Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Tuesday – the first is off at 12h10.
