COMING TO TAKE US ON IN THE TANKARD

 

The 15 Acceptors for the $50 000 Castle Tankard to be run over 2000m at Borrowdale Park on May 16 includes several South African raiders, among them Warcraft, a winner over 1900m. Trained by Alyson Wright, the four-year-old gelding is by Western Winter (USA) out of an Elliodor mare and is a four-time winner.

Warcraft (below) is seen here winning a 1900m MR 90 Divided Handicap in November 2014, with Athandiwe Mgudiwa in the irons. This Saturday he won a MR 78 Handicap at Greyville, also 1900m.
