Van Vuuren Galloper Goes For Gold

Jackpot starts at 14h00

The R1 million Gr1 Gold Medallion is the second leg of the projected R3 million carryover jackpot at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Saturday, with Highveld raider Cymric heading a strong field of 2yo males.

  1. CYMRIC : “ Since we’ve gelded him, he’s lightened up beautifully and turning into a nice athlete”, Gavin Lerena. “He recovered within 2 weeks and was ready to go again. He’s a really tough horse. He’s been racing a lot, close to each other and just comes back for more all the time”, Johan Janse van Vuuren.
  2. ONE MORE : “He’s nice little guy. He won a good race first time out. We were under the impression the way he won, that he could be looking for a little more, but you had to taken into account how green he was … he made it look harder than it was. We had planned to give him another race before this, but it didn’t go according to plan. He’s done enough groundwork at home. He’s fit and well enough to have a crack at ‘high school’. It’s a competitive field, but I believe he’s competitive himself. We’ve got a nice draw in the middle and am expecting him to run a big race”, Lucky Houdalakis.
  3. PISTOL PETE : “He’s a lovely horse and from day 1, we knew he was good. Every time he comes to the course he gets more and more professional. It’s early days, but he looks progressive and excited for the future with him”, Calvin Habib.
  4. PROCEED & 14. COSMIC SPEED : “Both have won their last starts. Cosmic Speed won a maiden last time, but he did it in really good fashion. He had run 2nd to the Nursery winner prior to that and did need gelding thereafter. He’s definitely the horse that has the ability and hopefully he can cope with this massive step-up in class. Proceed’s last run was an eye-catching win. He’s a horse with a lot of speed and he can finish off strongly too. I think the course and distance will suit him. My 2 are fit and well, and we are hoping for a good showing from both”, Sean Tarry.
