UPDATES – Top Me Up Holly
June 16th, 2021
She was looking to make it a hat-trick of wins at Hollywoodbets Scottsville today. She set the pace and stayed on nicely to finish in third place. She is a gutsy type and stays all day. See the replay here

She followed up her maiden win with an equally impressive victory over 2000m on the turf at Hollywoodbets Greyville. She took the lead at the 250m mark and held on where it matters most. Well done to trainer Alyson Wright and thank you to Lyle Hewitson for a perfect ride. Well done to the breeders Lammerskraal Stud. See the replay here.

The daughter of Master Of My Fate won a very good race to shed her maiden tag over 1800m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Thank you to Lyle Hewitson for a professional ride from a wide barrier position. Well done to Alyson Wright and breeders Lammerskraal Stud.

It was another honest performance by this filly today, unfortunately finding one better on the day. From an improved draw next time out, she should be very hard to beat. See the replay of todays run here.
March 10th, 2021
It was a solid comeback run by this filly to finish 2nd behind Shape Of You. She will come on a lot from the experience and should be a major contender next time out. See the replay here.

Two very exciting 2-year old fillies working alongside one another this morning. Closest to the camera is East Coast Star (Visionaire x Salita by Western Winter), previously know as Sunnegga. On the far side is My Rapid Lady (Master Of My Fate x Aquila Rapax by Western Winter). Both fillies were bred by Lammerskraal Stud, purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the 2019 BSA National Yearling Sale.

She has come along way in the last few weeks. One of the more exciting 2 year old fillies for the upcoming season, she is seen here being put through her paces at track.

This filly has been doing very well over the past few weeks and a lot is pointing towards her being the type of filly to line up in those 2-year-old features next year. Seen below, having a well-deserved cool down after her workout this week.
August 24th, 2019
She has been let down and seems to be enjoying the warm winter conditions, here in KZN. For a Master Of My Fate filly, who generally have the tendency to be a bit hot, she has a very relaxed temperament. She will need a bit of time, but we don’t intend on bringing her in much before December time. As such, she will have plenty of time to thrive throughout the spring and early summer.
June 12th, 2019
She has settled in nicely at Leckhampton Valley Spelling and Pre Training, where is being pre-trained. Judging by the recent comment from the farm below, she is certainly going on the right direction and we’ll be looking forward to seeing her step out this summer.
“My Rapid Lady is a lovely attractive filly. She is growing well and looks to have the potential to be a superb horse.”
