The Gold Circle Trainer Award for the month has been bestowed on Dennis Drier

One of the senior trainers in KwaZulu-Natal and indeed in South Africa having taken out his licence back in 1977, Dennis has been champion trainer in his province many times and continues to produce winners for his patrons.

This month he and Louis Goosen topped the trainer table in terms of races won and the yards of Garth Puller, Brett Crawford and Mark Dixon were right there making it a close finish at the top of the table.

That being the case, Dennis just edged his competitors with a near 30% winning strike rate and that being while he was also still involved with his annual campaign in the Cape. His loyal supporters would also have had a good month with a R1 win bet on each of his 17 runners giving a total return of R43.40.

Well done Dennis
