Sean Tarry scores the first of a double as Celestial City claims a fifth career victory, ridden by Kabelo Matsunyane (Candiese Lenferna Photography).
Garth Puller did not need a winner at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Wednesday to reclaim the KZN Trainers Championship which he won two season ago and which he lost to Gareth van Zyl last season.
Van Zyl had one winner today to close the gap to three wins, but he only contests two races on World Pool Gold Cup day so can’t catch Puller (unless he wins with Money Heist and his two Gold Cup contenders dead-heat for first).
Puller has had 60 wins in KZN for the season achieved at a strike rate of 9.88%.
Van Zyl is in second place on 57 at 16.57%, although overall in SA he has had 69 wins this season
Michael Roberts and Peter Muscutt have both had 53 wins in KZN this season at 12.02% and 16.06% respectively and they have had 54 and 59 wins overall in the season respectively.
Wendy Whitehead has had 51 wins in KZN at 13.64%.
Alyson Wright has had 49 wins in KZN at 13.46% and has had 50 wins this season overall.
The double scorers at today’s Hollywoodbets Scottsville meeting were Sean Tarry and Keagen de Melo.
Tarry goes to 112 wins for the season at 15.86%.
De Melo goes to 276 wins at 19.37%.
