Shaheen Hits The Racing Stars Hard

Another chance to win big on Sunday

Popular racing expert and Hollywoodbets podcaster Shaheen Shaw is the latest daily winner after eight gruelling days of the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge Racing Stars competition.

On a difficult Turffontein card, Shaheen applied his unique brand of finding value winners, that included the Craig Zackey 200-1 double of Princess Ilaria and Bold Act, to beat his 38 opponents.

Graeme Hawkins got closest to Shaheen in second, with Peter Barker putting in his best performance in third.

Shaheen banks the R500 daily prize and told the Sporting Post the prize will come in ‘very handy’ after his recent Bangkok shopping expedition.

“Like all punters, I study form but have my quirks. Like Craig Zackey is my jockey. What a champion! When Craig wins, I win. Thanks to Hollywoodbets for a great initiative. They have united all of us – people working under different umbrellas, with one common cause – a passion for horseracing. The camaraderie is great and I’m looking forward to a tough 22 days ahead!”

Overall leader on the progressive log as Sunday’s weekly prize day approaches is 4Racing’s Neil Pretorius, who has produced some consistent performances to hold off dual winners in Winning Form’s James Rich and Gary Lemke.

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 logs.
