The star horse for the passionate Port Elizabeth based owner Andrea Puggia is shining again.

The sixth year-old gelding Shine Like A Star won again on Friday (20th October), just when Puggia nearly gave up on another visit to the Fairview winners circle.

Shine Like A Star won the Interbet MR 68 Divided Handicap over 1600m on the Polytrack with jockey JP van der Merwe in the saddle for trainer Gavin Smith.

“It is the best horse that I have been involved in. He has now won six races,” a delighted Puggia said after the race at Fairview.

Shine Like The Star was crowned as the East Cape champion Two Year Old Colt/Gelding in 2014. Lately he has been struggling to find his best form but Puggia was very happy to see Shine Like A Star is back to delivering the goods.

“He has a special place in my heart and great to see him come back like this. I almost gave up on him and want to say well done to Gavin and his team,” Puggia added.

Puggia owns Shine Like A Star in partnership with Tony Agrela and Mervyn Chetty.
