There are only seven meetings left in the Hollywoodbets Sizzling Summer Challenge series for Jockeys, Trainers,  Apprentices and Horses.

 
Garth Puller has a healthy lead in the Trainers Challenge but punters should be wary of taking the 3/10 odds about him, because he has just sold 13 horses to Mauritius.
 
Puller said he would still like to win the title, but it was not a set goal that he would strategize for.
 
He felt he had a top two finish in safekeeping and the difference between the prize money for first and second, R50,000 compared to R40,000, would not be as big as what he made from the sale of the horses.
 
Nevertheless, he emphasised his gratitude to Hollywoodbets for putting on the competition and for their overall input into KZN racing.
 
Kumaran Naidoo, who is 87.5 points behind Puller, looks to be the only one who can feasibly catch him.
 
In the two meetings over the weekend, Naidoo has eleven runners to Puller’s nine, so it is still going to be tough to close the gap.
