UPDATES – Purple Dominance

August 14, 2021
The Hollywood syndicate gelding Purple Dominance retired from racing on 11 August 2021. He had ten starts for one placing.

June 28th, 2021
He showed good improvement to finish third over 1000m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon. He may have found his best distance and it should not be long before he is in the winner’s enclosure. See the replay here.

May 16th, 2021
He showed good improvement to finish fifth over 1200m on the turf at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. That was his first start with the blinkers fitted and there should be more to come from him. See the replay here.

April 15th, 2021
He ran in the same race as Protea Pride and finished just in front of him. He is still lightly raced and has plenty of scope to improve.

February 11th, 2021
Purple Dominance is back for his third run this Saturday. See more about what we are expecting here.

Race 1 – 12:20
1160m – WSB Bet With The Best Maiden Plate

11 – Purple Dominance
Breeding: Jackson – For The Soul by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1

He drops back in trip as he was rather disappointing last time out, when stepping up to the 1400m. He is doing well at home and the stable expect him to bounce back with a much-improved run this time.

January 19th, 2021
Purple Dominance returns this afternoon, when he steps out in the 4th race at the Vaal. Details below.

Race 4 – 14:10
1400m – Racing Association Maiden Plate

10 – Purple Dominance
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 4 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1

He wasn’t disgraced in that debut effort after showing signs of greenness in the closing stages. He is bred to go over more ground so should relish the extra furlong on offer this time around. Muzi Yeni takes the mount and with the expected scope for improvement he should improve to place in this type of company.

January 4th, 2021
Purple Dominance has his debut tomorrow, in the first race at the Vaal. A son of Jackson, he will be going over a trip that should be too short for him. Perhaps needing the run, we are hoping that he will gain from the experience and strip much fitter for his next start. See more details about his race below:

Race 1 – 12:35

September 10th, 2020
This colt is taking a bit of time to get going, but he is turning into a nice looking son of Jackson and is just about ready to step up to the next test that is thrown his way. That will be a grass gallop in the coming weeks.
