The Argonaut colt, Equiano, with Apprentice Mathew Thackeray in the irons, won the 1200m Champion Juvenile Stakes at Borrowdale Park on Sunday by a staggering 6 lengths. with Call Me Earl, Demagogue and Rocky Road filling the minor placings.
Equiano (Thackeray winner of Champion Juvenile Stakes)

The colt is half-brother to Zimbabwe’s Champion racemare, Equina, and it appears he has inherited all the necessary genes. His sire, Argonaut, I have recently learned, is now based in Zimbabwe.
Equiano is owned by Peter Moor and trained by Amy Bronkhorst. He was bred by Cheveley Stud. Congratulations to all the winning connections.
