Updates – Syx Shooter

November 14th, 2019
He continues a fantastic run of form for the Hollywood Syndicate this week, landing his maiden victory out at the Vaal in Race 2 today. He was an unexpected winner, with this being his first run back after a rest. Our second winner from four runners this week, well done to the connections and to S’manga Khumalo for a solid ride.

11th November 2019
He makes his return after a 21 week absence from the course, this Thursday 14th November 2019 at the Vaal. The break however, has done him the world of good and he should come back a better horse. Back on the Highveld after a short stint in KZN, he is expected to need this outing quite badly, but it should bring him on nicely for a summer campaign. S’manga Khumalo takes the ride and we will be looking for a top half finish.

14th August, 2019
Currently having a short rest while he goes through his African Horse Sickness vaccinations, seen below after one of his recent afternoon walks.

27th May, 2019
He has been accepted to run this Thursday 30th May 2019, on the Vaal Classic course.

He was disappointing in his last start, when over racing in the middle parts of that 1200m outing. He ended up running out of steam in the closing stages, to finish well beaten. Calvin Habib takes the mount this time around and from gate 1, he should be able to find a handy position with a fair amount of ease, as he does have good gate speed. If settling thereafter, he should be able to give a very good account of himself and we give him an outside win chance and likely place finish. Final field below:

7th February, 2019
Syx Shooter, a gelding by Great Britain, put up a nice gallop earlier this week. We don’t think it was a gallop worthy of finding the winners box first time out, but it will bring him on a lot and he should run a nice race on debut in 10 days. See the clip below – he is drawn closest to the camera, with the white cap and black body.

1st November, 2018
Previously unnamed at the drop of the hammer, he has since been gelded and has now picked up his official tag and will be known as “Syx Shooter” going forward. Named by the Hollywood bets Software Development Team, he will be representing this dynamic team of developers and we look forward to having some fun with this smart son of Great Britain.
