Kommetdieding Draw is Ideal in July defence

The Hollywoodbets Durban July Final Field is out!! The field features 3 past winners of Africa’s greatest horse race in Kommetdieding, Belgarion and dual winner Do It Again. Leading 3 year old Grade 1 winners Pomp and Power, Safe Passage, Aragosta and Red Saxon have all taken their place in the final 18. Sparkling Water is the only filly in this year’s field. The barrier draws are up next.

The classy pair of Muzi Yeni and Smanga Khumalo lead the jockeys along with hot shot rider Richard Fourie and the well travelled Warren Kennedy all in the race. Rachel Venniker gets a ride this year and is the only female in the event.
