You can’t keep a good horse down…
A handful of Zim-breds still flying the flag
There were 8 races on last Sunday’s Borrowdale Park card and only 6 Zimbabwe bred horses took part. However, the locals won two of the races and another came second. The demise of our breeding industry was a crushing blow.
Sadly it is human nature not to appreciate what we have – until it is taken away.
SILVER BUCK BOUNCES BACK
Silver Buck (above) bounced back to his best on Sunday, getting the better of the more fancied runners in the 1200m Novice Plate.
By Century Stand (AUS) the three-year-old colt has won twice and been placed once from 5 starts. Greg Cheyne rode for Kirk Swanson and Silver Buck was bred by Sarahdane Stud.
Congratulations to the winning owners Dave Ward. Gary Carter, Sean Gorringe, V. Patel, Paula Lewis and Ursula and Paul Gorringe.
HOME BRED FILLY SCORES
Pas de Deux (below), the only Zimbabwean bred filly in the 1100m Maiden Juvenile Plate run at Borrowdale Park on Sunday, scored.
This was the daughter of Fencing Master (GB)’s first run for the Penny Fisher yard. She is owned and bred by Steve Tomlinson and Ryan Munger was in the irons.
Later in the afternoon Penny Fisher also sent out Magical Charm, winner of the 1600m Maiden Plate. Hennie Greyling was the pilot and the Judpot (USA) filly beat stable companion Sunrise Ruby by 2.50 lengths.
Congratulations to all the winning connections.
