DENNIS Drier has a chance of landing both the R1-million Bloodstock SA Sprint over 1200m and the R1-million Bloodstock SA Mile at Scottsville Racecourse on Sunday as he sends out two promising types in Hack Green and The High Life respectively.

Both Drier and stable jockey Sean Veale made no bones about how highly they regard Gimmethegreenlight colt Hack Green after he had powered home to win the Gr 2 Umkhomazi Stakes by three lengths from a wide draw over 1200m at Greyville on eLan Gold Cup day to remain unbeaten in two starts.

Assistant trainer Stuart Ferrie said, “He is a tough boy and is as well now as he was before the Umkhomazi.”

The Horse Chestnut filly, The High Life, caught the eye when running on strongly to win a Juvenile Plate over 1600m at Greyville on July 16.

She will be 3kg worse off on Sunday with Costa Da Sol for a mere short-head beating but does now have a draw advantage.

Furthermore, Ferrie said, “She has a tough task against the boys, but was still green last time and only got going in the last 100 metres. She is a nice filly and should go well.”
