Serino Moodley could make race history

Joey Soma told the Sporting Post that Winning Form-sponsored Serino Moodley met their original criteria of  experience of the Hollywoodbets Greyville track.

“Many jockeys called for the ride. At the end of the day it was about Serino’s capabilities and experience. On any other day, we could have chosen any one of the riders who called. For now, Serino was already at work on Red Saxon today (Tuesday) and it is all systems go. We wish Rachel a speedy recovery and hope to see her at the races on Saturday!” he added.

If Serino Moodley were to win the Hollywoodbets Durban July, he would become the first Indian rider in history to lift the prestigious trophy.

Red Saxon will jump from gate 14 and will carry 53kg.

The latest Hollywoodbets odds show Red Saxon is available at 40/1.
