Do It Again will carry this saddle cloth tomorrow in the Hollywoodbets Durban July.



The Justin Snaith-trained legend Do It Again will become the first horse to run in six renewals of the Durban July and the big race’s sponsor Hollywoodbets have accordingly had a special saddle cloth sown for him.

Do It Again’s special saddle cloth has five of the familiar golden Hollywoodbets stars on it, depicting his five previous runs, and two of them are bigger than the others to depict his two victories.

It is most fitting he is number six and drawn six in his record-breaking sixth run in the big race.

Do It Again is statistically the greatest July horse in history having won it twice and finished third, fourth and fourth in his three other attempts.

He has been the best performed horse at the weights every year he has run except for last year when he was third best behind Jet Dark and Kommetdieding.

In 2004 a special saddle cloth was sown for Greys Inn. He was number ten and his saddle cloth had the South African flag on it to depict ten years of democracy.

Grey’s Inn fittingly won the race.

Will Do It Again do the same?
