September 21st, 2022
Raced over 2000m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Finished 4th out of 7 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She was not given the best of rides. He was told to go forward and if there was no pace to lead. They went very slow and she was tucked in and couldn’t sprint at the finish as she is one paced.

Raced over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Finished 3rd out of 5 runners.
James Rich post-race comment: Good first run for the stable after returning from a 20-week break. She will come on from this run and will enjoy further.
July 20th, 2022
She is in hard work. She isn’t quite where I want her fitness wise, but is getting there. In a few weeks she will be ready for a grass gallop.
June 2nd, 2022
A decision has been made to move You Deserve It to KZN. He will now be trained by Gary Rich.
April 5th, 2022
Raced over 1600m at Turffontein on the Inside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Poor run and she was hanging in badly up the straight. She may need to drop a few points in the ratings to be competitive again. Her best form is on the polytrack.
March 1st, 2022
Raced over 1800m on the Vaal Classic course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She needed the run and was up against stronger company. She may need to drop a few points in the rating to be competitive again.
October 31st, 2021
Raced over 2200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Disappointing run. Warren Kennedy said that she was not herself. Normally she travels and he was expecting to be in a forward position, but she did not do that yesterday. She is definitely better than the run.
October 9th, 2021
She took her place in an 1800m contest on the Turffontein Inside course. She is a better horse when racing with cover and may be at her best on the polytrack surface. The daughter of Pathfork was given a seven-pound penalty for her last victory which may make things difficult for her from now on.
August 30th, 2021
She won her second race within three days and takes her career number of wins to four. It is an incredible training feat from Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Clinton Binda. Warren Kennedy was aboard the daughter of Pathfork once again. Well done to the breeders Ridgemont Highlands. See the replay here.
August 27h, 2021
She won a gutsy race against the males on the Polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville today. The daughter of Pathfork has now won three races. She was given a positive ride by Warren Kennedy and trained by Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Clinton Binda. Well done to the breeders Ridgemont Highlands. See the replay here.
August 16th, 2021
She won a good race on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville today. She is trained by sponsored trainer, Clinton Binda and was given a confident ride by Richard Fourie. This is her second career victory and there should be more to come from her. Well done to the breeders Ridgemont Highlands. See the replay here.
June 20th, 2021
She gave another good account of herself finishing third over 2000m on the Turffontein Inside course. Her and jockey Raymond Danielson have struck up a good partnership and she should find herself in the winner’s enclosure in the near future.
June 10th, 2021
She produced another good effort, finishing second against the males over 2000m on the Vaal Classic course. She has relished the step up in distance and is in a very good space. It should not be long until she is in the winner’s enclosure once again.
May 18th, 2021
She took her place in a Merit Rated 68 Handicap (F&M) race over 2000m at the Vaal. She was settled in a handy position and stayed on strongly to finish second. That was her first start over the distance and she must be followed next time.
February 21st, 2021
She stayed on relative well today, but may have just found the opposition too strong. As she drops slightly in the ratings she should go a lot closer to winning. See the replay of her run here.
December 15th, 2020
You Deserve It picks up her maiden win at the 6th time of asking, in race 5 at the Vaal today. It was a masterclass ride by young Jason Gates and she quickened in fine style over the extra ground. Well done to the Clinton Binda stable and breeders Ridgemont Highlands. See the replay here.
December 5th, 2020
Great having some of the Gauteng team on course to represent the Hollywood Syndicate at the Vaal today. Here they are pictured with jockey, Muzi Yeni, ahead of his engagement to ride You Deserve It. In the end, she ran a credible 4th and should have plenty more to come.
October 26th, 2020
Ahead of her run in race 3 at the Vaal on Thursday 29th October 2020, You Deserve It is taking her preparation in her stride. Here she is having a late afternoon roll in the sand, finding some relief from the heat of the day.
September 21st, 2020
Although she is still quite backward the stable have decided that it is time to get going with her. See the final field for her debut at the Vaal, this Tuesday 22nd September 2020.

She is a little more ‘underdone’ than her full brother, at this stage of her preparation for her racing career. A recent photo below.
