Picture : What a finish! (Photo: Wayne Marks)

A neck separated the first four home in the fifth race at Hollywoodbets Durbanville today and the fifth horse was only beaten 0,60 lengths.

The pictures taken above and below by Wayne Marks tell the story.

The winner of the Cape Racing Sales Cape C Stakes event over 1250m is the horse on the very outside, the Paul Reeves-trained Creme Brulee (Soft Falling Rain), who was delivered with a late charge by in form Grant van Niekerk and got up by a head. The horse with the blue cap and white stripe, Easy Money, on the inside is second; the horse with the black cap, Lady Look Alike, is a short-head further back in third and the horse with the green colours, Little Miss Pink, is another short-head further back in fourth. The grey horse with the yellow colours, Unconquerable Lady, is 0,40 lengths furtheer back in fifth.

Creme Brulee’s second career win, at odds of 40/1, gave Reeves a double on the day.

The picture below shows the horses a metre or so from the line.
