Closest finish at Borrowdale Park on Sunday came in the 1700m Maiden Plate when Hillah The Hun seemed to have it in the bag…until Pirate Hunter finally got his act together, sweeping up late, but the filly retained her upper hand – winning margin 0.10 lengths.
Two for the notebook, perhaps.
Divine Advocate finished 1.35 lengths back followed by Tremendous.
Hillah The Hun, owned by Gengis Goksel and Mike Eaton, is by Visionaire (USA) out of a Jet Master mare. The three-year-old was bred by Mr A.B. Hogg and this was her second start at Borrowdale. She is trained by Penny Fisher and Hennie Greyling was in the irons.
Congratulations to the winning connections.
