Congratulations to, Mr V. Gappah, Mr R.H.S and Mrs P. Beattie, and Mr D.H. and Mrs J.L. Cockedge, the owners of Knuckleball who ran a great race at Borrowdale Park on Sunday afternoon, as expected.
The son of Curved Ball (AUS) kept in touch with the pacesetter, Pirate Hunter, but coming into the home straight there was never any doubt about who would win the 2400m Zimbabwe Derby.
Ryan Munger rode the winner for Penny Fisher.
Israel, second, was followed across the line by Peggson and Bugatti Blue.
Knuckleball also won the Zimbabwe 2000. He has won five of his 12 starts and been placed 7 times. The three-year-old gelding was bred by Clifton Stud.
