Racing Stars: Lemke Defies The Handicapper – Again!

Next stop - Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Wednesday

When, if ever, will the handicapper stop Gary Lemke? The rampant freelance sports writer made it three daily wins in the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge Racing Stars competition, after pipping Shaheen Shaw to win Day 18 of the competition at Turffontein on Tuesday.

The man who wrote the wonderful story of champion Pocket Power is proving something of a star himself and his three daily victories makes him the standout of the month so far, even though Paul Lafferty leads the Week 3 log.

Winning Form’s James Rich is a dual winner, but has not found his stride in Week 3 yet – but his rating is dropping and he could bounce back at any time.

The happy winner banks the R500 daily prize again and magnanimously told his 41 shell-shocked opponents that the number 1 berth is ‘only on loan and tomorrow we go again.’ That’s cold comfort for some!

There is R3 000 in prize money up for grabs in the weekly Racing Stars competition, with R2 500 going to the weekly winner with the most points, and R500 to the player with the most winners for that week.

Have a look at the top 10 on the daily and progressive weekly logs.

The new fun competition 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 on every South African race meeting, covering KZN, Western Cape, Gauteng, and Eastern Cape.

The racing public are reminded that the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge is available on all local racemeetings, as well as Singapore and Hong Kong.

It’s free to enter and is your chance to take on the professionals!

The show moves to Hollywoodbets Kenilworth in midweek – the first race is off at 12h00.
