I thought the Kirk Swanson stable might have a couple of winners at Borrowdale on Sunday – and they did – but I wasn’t expecting Ezekial to be one of them.
The five-year-year-old son of Soar With Eagles (USA) was coming off a 92 day rest. He stepped out smartly in the 1450m MR 53 Handicap, kept in touch with the early leader, made his move at about the 400m mark, then left the field for dead, winning by six lengths. Ryan Munger was riding.
Goose Green, also from the Swanson yard, ran second, followed by Detente and Megagram.
Ezekial is owned by John Koumides and Debra Swanson, and he was bred in Zimbabwe by Sunmark Thoroughbreds. Congratulations to everyone.
