Four days to go until the 56th running of the $50 000 Castle Tankard (Gr1). All the action will take place at Borrowdale Park on Saturday, May 5.
The Mike de Kock trained Dynasty gelding, Kilrain, has travelled to Zimbabwe this week to take part in Zimbabwe’s major race.
According to Sporting Post, ” It is only De Kock’s second raid North Of The Limpopo. MJ Byleveld will be riding the 6yo, who recently ran a smart third in the Listed Drum Star Handicap. Kilrain is likely to stay on for the $40 000 OK Grand Challenge to be run on 2 June.”
Ashton Park is a Card Scratching which leaves nine runners in the Tankard line-up.
