405 – HUGSANDHIGHFIVES showed a good turn of foot to win on debut over 1200m on the Hollywoodbets Greyville polytrack this afternoon. She was ridden to victory by Sporting Post-sponsored Athandiwe Mgudlwa and is trained by Hollywoodbets-sponsored Garth Puller. Well done to the breeder Tinus Gericke.
She was named by the Brentford Executive Team after their recent travels to South Africa, where they were hosted by the Hollywoodbets Team. They said they have never worked with a sponsor where there has been so many “beers, hugs and high fives!”
