The respective winners of the Hollywoodbets Sizzling Summer Challenge series’ leagues looked cut and dried after Monday’s racing, except for the horse league, which is still wide open.
That was until it was announced Keagan de Melo would sit out a suspension between Christmas and New Year.
That has opened the door for Serino Moodley.
There are only three meetings left and there is a yawning 92,5 points gap between De Melo and Moodley.
However, it is in fact quite feasible for Moodley to overhaul De Melo.
In the Wednesday meeting of last week, Moodley gathered 58 points.
Therefore, if clear skies were forecast, he might even be made favourite by Hollywoodbets in the betting for the jockeys league.
However, the forecast does not look bright and the weather might have the final say.
Hopefully, all three meetings will take place because Moodley’s quest to do it will certainly add plenty of intrigue to the racing.
First prize for the jockeys league is R60,000 and second prize R40,000, so Moodley has plenty to gain.
Garth Puller and Rachel Venniker look to have wrapped up the Hollywoodbets Sizzling Summer Challenge trainers’ and apprentices’ leagues respectively.
