Trainer of the Month – May 2017

PUBLISHED: 05 June 2017

Dennis Drier

Dennis Drier

Dennis is one of the country’s senior trainers who has prepared the winners of many hundreds of races including the Vodacom Durban July with Spanish Galliard. Among the top horses he has trained are the legendary Val De Ra and the magnificent filly Beach Beauty.

But possibly his most notable achievement has been his recent domination of the Grade 1, Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion for two-year-old, a race which he has won six times in the past eight years and seven times overall.

The win this year with Sea And Sand was incredible with the colt slow out of the pens then accelerating from last to demolish the opposition.

His success with young sprinters has been phenomenal and his seventh victory in this premier juvenile sprint race with Sea And Sand is an achievement worthy of the award.

Well done Dennis
