The Hollywood Syndicate were KZN Champion owners last season and were runners up to Drakenstein Stud in the national ownership championship, which is based on stakes.

However, their 102 winners were the most of any owner in the country, 16 clear of Suzette Viljoen’s 86 winners and 26 clear of joint third-placed Drakenstein Stud and Sabine Plattner.

Hollywood have already amassed 16 winners this term, so as the season has only been going for seven weeks they are ahead of schedule if achieving their PB (“personal best”) is their aim.

If they keep this rate up they will have 119 winners by the end of the season.

Their highlight this past weekend would have been the performance over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville by their Peter Muscutt-trained four-year-old Dynasty gelding Imilenzeyokududuma.

He was the second leg of a quick double for Hollywood after the Alyson Wright-trained Fashionigma (Master Of My Fate) had scored in the previous race.

Imilenzeyokududuma has matured into a fine looking specimen and Tristan Gooden soon had him settled on the rail in the box seat.

He showed a fine turn of foot to hit the front at the 400m mark before galloping clear to win by 3,10 lengths from the hard-knocking Sean Tarry-trained Willow’s Wish (Willow Magic).

Imilenzeyokududuma was running off an 83 merit rating in the MR91 contest and the handicappers have raised him to a 90.

It was only his seventh career start. 

He looks headed for feature company, although as he is already a four-year-old Muscutt will not have an easy task placing him.
