Knuckleball, son of Curved Ball (USA), made every post a winning one at Borrowdale Park this afternoon – a worthy winner of the Zimbabwe 2000.
Trained by Penny Fisher and with Ryan Munger in the irons, the three-year-old gelding has now won four and been placed seven times from 11 starts. He was bred by Clifton Stud and is owned by Mr V. Gappah, Mr R H S and Mrs P Beattie, and Mr D H and Mrs J L Cocksedge.
Israel, Butchie Boy and Bugatti Blue filled the minor places. The going was soft – penetrometer reading 29.
Hearty congratulations to the winning connections.
